It's not a sweater unless it's got sleeves!


This weekend there was a lot of sewing up going on - particularly the sewing up of sleeves. The Highly Modified Chinese Lace Pullover was part of the Loopy Ewe Dream In Color KAL and the finish date was June 1, so that one got finished up first. At this point, it's too warm to wear, but it's finished, folded and waiting for the temperatures to drop. Since it's a 3/4 sleeve pullover, it won't be shelved for too long once September rolls around. I got it finished on Friday and got the picture posted over at the Loopy Ewe so I did beat the KAL deadline.

The yarn I used is Dream In Color's Classy in the Cool Fire colorway. I won't go into all the details about this pullover again, but if you're curious, just click the pullover tag at the end of this post and you'll get more information than you ever wanted about what I did on this sweater. The short version is don't mess around with this pattern, just follow the directions. Trust me on this one.

I'm curious, is it a trick of my monitor or is there a notable difference between the skeins of yarn? It looks like the top is a few shades darker than the bottom. It isn't unattractive, but I was wondering how the yarn worked on a larger project. Those hand-dyes can be gorgeous (as is the sweater), but tricky.
