Wicked Pictures



My new favourite spring/fall sweater! It is simply gorgeous, feels good, fits really good, and is perfect for when you are not entirely comfortable with just a tee, but dont want a long-sleeved tee - and for many occasions in between.

Stats:

Yarn:
Dale heilo, on sale, in a rich, yellowish brown.

Pattern: Reverse-engineered "Wicked" from Zephyrstyle, with many many alterations, for example CO 10 st. under the sleeves to avoid excessive pucking under the sleeves.

Time: Five days, from April 25 til April 30.

Amount used: 6 balls and roughly another ½ ball. That means i used maybe 650 yards?

Comments: Fits, is warm, has a nice colour and cost me 5$ to make! It does not get much better than that. Plus, it makes me feel like a woman and not like a tent, a thing that is a good thing. (I have felt like a tent for years when I weighed well over 60 pounds more than now)


I will leave you with a bonus picture:

Into the Sky!

PS: Thank you, stalking weirdo. You make me feel special, spending time and noticing when I post, making me laugh and help me grow self confidence. It is just like having a good friend, except, you obviosly are not :-)

Oh that looks so good! I love the unique ribbing. And I am in love with the color - especially in the last photo with that fabulous sky!
