Once again, E updates us on her hunt for the perfect sweater...
Next up is the Middlefield Pullover by Melissa LaBarre in the book New
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/middlefield-pullover. I broke
from my sailor color theme to break into some delicious Lorna's Laces in
Vera, Growth, Berry and Chocolate that I have been hoarding for several
(blush) years. After a few color arguments (I apparently have a
ingrained aversion to variegated yarn, poor Vera.) I went with straight
solid blocks but still a stripe or two. This is a top down pattern and
(surprise!) I have been trying it on as I go. Hence I discovered that
the pattern is way too short for me so I spaced out the waist shaping
and added about 5 inches and finished with a short rib strip (no more
hemmed edges for me, dammit!). I am pleased so far and am working on the
sleeves....and so the saga continues!
