WIP: Cozy V-Neck Pullover

Whew! This sweater is an exercise in persistence. I had seen others' blog posts about this sweater's "miles of ribbing", but now I am experiencing first hand what that feels like. It really does get boring after awhile. But I keep going because the design of this sweater results in a garment that while fitted, feels like a comfy, worn t-shirt because of the give.

The yarn is 50% llama and 50% wool, and is so lightweight it doesn't feel like you're wearing a sweater. But it is TOASTY!

After I finish the miles of torso ribbing (still not done comes down past the waist), I'll move on to the miles of ribbed sleeves and ribbed neckline.

I think I'm going to LOVE wearing this sweater. The lavender color from the outside photo is more true.

This is beautiful. You can really see the color in the second picture. And it looks so flattering on you.

I really like that color too! I am still on the miles of knitting, but ribbing will happen soon. The Turtle Neck Vest from the FK book was the same way - miles of ribbing. Hopefully this wool/llama blend will be better on the wrists than 100% cotton. Whew that was rough!
