Lightweight Pullover - Finished!

Lightweight pullover 
I finished my Lightweight Pullover this past weekend and I even had time to block it!  I really only blocked the neck and the lower hem.  I think I finished it just in time because except for today (which might involve wearing shorts), it's supposed to get cold this week.

I knit this in Squoosh Fiberarts Rapture in Planet 9.  The yarn is soft and feels great.  It reminds me of Madelinetosh Pashmina and Dream in Color Smooshy With Cashmere.  It will feel great in this design, even up against my neck.  (I'm funny about things close to my neck.)  I cast on for a bigger size neck, worked it in ribbing instead of stockinette, and used larger needles to make it loose and slouchy.  I adjusted the stitch count during the raglan increase section to get back on track for my size and I didn't increase the sleeve stitches to where the pattern said because I wanted a narrower sleeve.  Other than that, I knit it exactly as the pattern directed.  Once I was through making all my changes (thank heavens I took good notes), it was easy and straight forward knitting.

The question now is what do I knit next?  It's December and I kind of like having everything wrapped up and starting fresh on new projects next year, so the most sensible thing for me to do is to work on my poor neglected Meditative Blanket.  Obviously that's not getting finished this year but I bet I could get a lot done on it if I work on it exclusively for the rest of this month.

I'm thinking about casting on another sweater.

What a beautiful sweater. And you make those pattern changes sound so doable!
