I found the tripod I had been looking for for months, so I can show you the pullover I finished at the cottage. It was perfect for those cool evening walks on the beach.
Pattern: Coco, by Jo Sharp (with a name like that, how could I not knit it, right?)
Yarn: 8 skeins of Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran Tweed, in Vermouth
Needles: 4 mm
I'm quite happy with the fit. It's comfortable, but not too baggy either. I think I finally understand what mods I need to make to fit my pear shape. I cast on for a large, then decreased gradually to end up with the smallest size for the top.
Coco was an easy, straightforward pattern. The yarn is deliciously soft and beautifully tweedy. My LYS says that Silk Road will no longer be distributed in North America. Has anyone else heard this? I hope this isn't the case!!! It's one of my all-time favourite yarns.
