I think I stopped knitting this because I didn't like the striped look. Can't remember exactly. Oddly, the main attraction for me to keep it and finish is the cluster of green towards the end of the one sleeve. That's it. The big payoff. A green patch.
Whether I will finish the sweater is still undetermined. If I do, I will need to buy more yarn, if I can find it. It obviously won't be of the same dye lot but that doesn't often matter with these acrylic (GASP! Gimme a break, it's all I could afford to buy so much of then. And now, frankly.) yarns produced for the masses. TBD. For now, I have about 4 skeins and have decided to make the Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole from the Scarf Style book by Pam Allen. When finished, it looks like this.
I'd never tried Entrelac before. I was kind of apprehensive, but like most patterns, just takes a little getting used to. I'm into it. The pattern calls for size US 10 1/2s and I originally used 10s, knit about a foot, then decided I didn't like the drape. Too tight, resulting in a bumpier, harsher looking garment. I switched to 13s and I'm digging it. About 2 feet in, I stopped for a week or so due to heat and general busyness. Think I'll pick up again tonight. It's looking something like this.
