Wisteria, She is Done!











I wore her yesterday, in our freezing temps, and she was bulletproof. I didn't even wear a coat.
I started her in Sept. of 08, and just finished her last month. I used Cascade 220, in grey. My first go-round with Cascade, and I'm very pleased, so far. The only modification I made was to not put any waist shaping in. I don't go in there, so my sweater shouldn't, either. This was such a fun and easy project, and yes, I may be persuaded to make another!!
Nicole, thank you for the use of your #8 dpn's. I couldn't have done it without you. I'll be getting them back to you ASAP!!

OMG! I love it! The instructor in my sweater class listed this as option for a sweater to knit. I fell in love with it when I saw it. I love your version. Fabulous!

It's beautiful! I've been looking and looking at this pattern, but since I've never knit a top down sweater before, I'm a little hesitant to try it.
