I finished and blocked a sweater last weekend. It is a bit free-form, just a large box with garter sleeve caps and cowl neck. I used some Corgi Hill Farm "Insomnia" which I finished some time ago, paired with Stricken Smitten hand-dyed Shimmer Glimmer yarn in the colorway "Plumage." I started the bottom in garter, switching to a couple of pattern stitches and stockinette, as mood suited me.

I saved a couple of pieces of handspun, in similar colors, to do the arm bands. Otherwise, I used up the handspun and switched to the Plumage.

I used two different knitting needles to keep the gauge as consistent as possible with the different yarns and stitch patterns.

Happy Knitting,
Lisa Kay
