silvery texture

Blogger is back! (I hope.)

Bristow has a back! (I'm sure.)

Bristow back - done!

It also has a front. (Well, half of one.)

Bristow, left front, 6/9/06

Knitting this sweater has been almost completely smooth. The yarn is still great, and for the most part the pattern is very well written. I had an issue on the front, where there was some conflicting info. about a measurement at a certain point (which is surprising, given that the model sweater was knit in the same size), but I just matched things up with the back row-for-row, and it turned out just fine.

Pardon my shoddy pinning skills. I really need a blocking board, or at least a grid pattern to pin on. It's so hard to get things nice and square. They'll get a proper pinning when it's time to block.

Bristow is GORGEOUS! Man, I saw that pattern when it was released and thought nothing of it. I saw yours, and immediately searched out the pattern link. I have to have one - definitely in a subtle color, not the original!
Hope it looks great on, too (and, you know, finished ;).

Exactly- I probably wouldn't have given that pattern any consideration- but yours looks great. It's simple, but with detail, the perfect combination.
