Pattern:Notre Dame Pullover-Summer 07 IK
Material: Berroco Ultra Alpaca 50% alpaca, 50% wool ( I detest 100% alpaca becuase it sheds way to much, this blend is as nice as 100 % alpaca without the shed and with extra warmth)
Amount: hmm 5 balls? I knit this awhile ago
Needles: hmm maybe US 8
Modifications: Not too many. I added the 2 inch knit 1 purl 1 ribbed band on the body and the sleeves because I love ribbing. I did a yarn subsitution and really thats about it. Veronik Avery writes and designs the most beautiful patterns
Pretty hand painted button from my LYS in Tarrytown, NY
Overall this is a great sweater and because I am no model and my friend is no photographer the sweater looks ways better in person. Surprisingly this sweater was a quick 3 1/2 week knit.
Flickr is totally pissing me off! I just can't seem to post more than one photo a blog entry. I will do more intensive research this weekend.
So tomorrow my whole office is going fishing! As a strictly veggie with a very surburban family I have never been fishing and weird enough I'm pretty excited. Personally I don't eat meat because of people fishing, I don't eat meat because of mass fishing, factory farms and the idea of mass breeding for money. So me and the other 19 engineers I work with will venture out on the high seas with bottled beer and sandwichs (veggies and cheese only please!) to catch some striped bass. Maybe I should reread The Old Man and the Sea before tomorrow :)
