I feel Lucky.....



Every now and then something you knit comes out darn near perfect.

As was the case with my Short Lucky.I have to say though, when I first downloaded the pattern, I was a little unsure - it was 8 pages long. I jumped in though and quickly figured out that the pattern is so long because she gives such great detailed directions. Which I need....

I did a wet block on this one, as I wanted mine longer - from shoulder seam to the hem it is 25". I've learned that if I have a shorter sweater I will NOT wear it. Or I'll spend all day tugging at it. And ribbing (to me anyhow) looks very good with some aggressive blocking.



I think I may need some sort of clasp or closure at the top, but for now, I am so wearing this to work today just as is.



Details:
Short Lucky by Thea Coleman
Yarn - Cascade 220 heathers, 4 skiens
Needles - size 8 circulars (I think the pattern calls for 9's, but this yarn just looked so much nicer with the 8's)
Size - Medium.

I'm seriously in awe of you every time you turn out another of your incredible sweaters. If I make one per year, I feel downright triumphant.

The fit is perfect for you too! :)

It looks great! I like the color a lot. I want to knit White Russian from the same designer, but now I'm thinking maybe I need to get lucky. ;)
