Sweater Number 3 Finish

Am LOVING my modified Vitamin D.  I finished it yesterday and it’s now at home lying on the spare bed being blocked.  I don’t think I’ve ever changed a pattern before I’ve knit it at least once, but this time I fell completely in love with what Felicia Semple of The Craft Sessions did with her version that I decided to go for it.  And I can’t express how happy I am with my finished version.  The picture below is before it was blocked but I think you can at least see the basic shape.

This one definitely made me think I absolutely need to get my act together and get a timer for my camera so I can show the sweater on…  One of the things that I especially love is how this fits across my shoulders, and to be fair this detail would be the same in the original pattern.  It really is ingenious how the yarn overs that create the eyelet detail also serve as the increases.  I also can’t express how lovely and soft the Blue Sky Alpaca Silk is…. this is definitely one of those sweaters that feels like a cozy hug!

I had the lovely Nicole in yesterday to learn how to make toe up socks, and so I decided to cast on a pair as well.  I’ve never used the Cascade Heritage Sock that I got in last week, and boy is it lovely and soft.  I decided to do the toe/heel/ribbing in Butter and the body of the sock in China Blue.  A little sock knitting is what I need while I decide on Sweater Number 4!
