It's done!!

Why I got a bug to finish the sweater when it is humid and in the upper 80s I will never know, but here she is.

I knit this with Peruvian Sierra Aran (80% highland wool, 20% alpaca) in Garnet I think, color #788. I did not want a totally solid yarn; this has a subtle heather to it. Once I washed the sweater, it softened up considerably. I will still have to wear long sleeves underneath, but that is what I had planned.

I am going to Maine next weekend so I just might be able to wear this before next winter. Coastal Maine is still pretty chilly this time of year.

I followed the pattern for the 33 ½” bust. The sleeves are perfect for my long arms, and it fits nicely on my narrow shoulders. The front is a little shorter than I thought but it will drop with wear so I am not sweating it.

This was a fun project and I will consider making another jacket, probably in a lighter color like something in the oatmeal family, and a yarn that I can wear in more than one season.

Just so you know, it is a balmy 57 degrees here in Maine today. Makes me want a wool sweater too. The sweater came out beautifully. I love the color.
