I Finished Her!

I would like to introduce you to my gorgeous Colinette Shimmer sweater!

Isn't she beautiful! I am so pleased with this sweater. The yarn was a pain to work with (I didn't like the huge needles and the bumpy texture of the yarn), but the end result is gorgeous. The yarn softened as I worked with it and blocking seems to have really made it nice to touch.

The sweater pattern is the Weekend Warrior from the Yarn Girls book. It was very simple to knit but taught me great new skills like picking up stitches.

This is the first project that I have made that fits just right. I liked my other tank and sweaters, but they don't compare to this.

Ok. I will finish gushing....
