Sweater, In Progress

My goal is to finish this darling sleeveless sweater by my birthday — May 17. I’m feeling pretty good about my chances!

Here’s my in-progress version, knitted in Cape Cod Silky Merino from Malabrigo Yarns. I love the variations in the color in a single skein, a result of Malabrigo’s kettle dyeing process. Plus, the 50% silk, 50% baby merino wool is super soft, and doesn’t aggravate my allergies at all. Win!

    Ooh, nice combo of yarns. And great project. I’d so knit that if I weren’t in a hate-hate relationship with my upper arms. Sigh.
