Giselda Lopi Sweater

I've been a bit distracted.

Ok. It is 90 degrees but I really am enjoying this sweater! The lower body is complete and ready for the sleeves.

Webs had Lopi yarn on sale for 3.75 US a ball, so what better time to make a lopi sweater. I've been thinking about traditional knitting lately, and this sweater seems like the first step toward a broader skill set. I've never knit a sweater in the round, and I have wanted to practice two color, stranded knitting. Here's the picture of Giselda:

Not the greatest picture, but you get the idea. I had started with a teal around the bottom, but decided it was much too bright. I think the dusty blue is really pretty. This is from the Best of Lopi book that I bought a month or two ago. What a super fast knit!
