Lightweight Pullover

I finished my Lightweight Pullover last night!

Yeah, the sleeves look way off, it’s just that my dressform is standing wonky.

Yarn:  Madelinetosh Merino Light (luuurrrvvv)

This was my first ever top-down sweater, meaning that you knit it in the round, starting at the neck, and then adding stitches at the shoulder as you work, moving on down the body and finishing at the hem.  This is such a great technique, I want to do every knit as top-down from now on!  For me, the greatest thing about doing it this way is that I can try it on as I work:

You can stop at key fitting points, such as the bust, try it on and assess the fit before moving on.  Love it!  More gratuitous shots:

I had started another pattern using this method with some worsted weight yarn:

This pattern is called Wicked, also a top-down raglan sleeve sweater.  The yarn is Madelinetosh Worsted (now called Tosh DK).  I am sooo loving this yarn!

I’m not too worried about my recent lack of sewing mojo.  Although, my sewing table is piling up with unfinished projects and mending.  First, I’d like to try and finish my Crochet Lace Dress.  This was my other option to wear to a wedding this June. 

TTFN!
