A Handspun Pullover!

As soon as I finished spinning the Aguas/Aguas/Zarzamora yarn and figured the yardage, I knew I wanted to knit a pullover with it.  Specifically, the Niamh pullover.  I even knit a gauge swatch and washed it and everything!  Then, once I finished Peasy, I finished winding the handspun skeins and cast on!

I decided to make it a bit oversized since I had the yardage to do that, so I'm knitting the M1 size.  I've never done a sweater with the Contiguous Set In Sleeve technique, but I really like it!  If you don't know what it is (I didn't until 10 minutes ago), you can knit a top down sweater in the round (kind of like a raglan, but the shaping happens in different places) and end up with a set in sleeve shape.  I'm past the upper body and sleeve shaping at this point, sleeve stitches are waiting on holders, and I'm knitting the lower section of the body.  Also, I'm getting some really fun stripes!  I realize that I will probably get wider stripes on the sleeves, but I got stripes on my gauge swatch and they were about the same size as what's showing up on the sweater.  I have no idea how that worked.  Magic yarn?  I don't even care what the stripes do, I'm just having fun knitting with my handspun!
