Sweater for June

Finished this.

Messed up the side fronts and had to undo all the finishing, knit some more and redo all the finishing. YUCK.

Pattern is Soleil from, the yarn is Muskat from Drops. For cotton the yarn isn't bad, but I hate knitting with cotton. This yarn is an exercise in attention, while it has a nice sheen it also splits something fierce.

I purchased this yarn at Yellow Dog, in Eau Claire WI. I intended to make something else, but after starting it and knitting for a while I realized what it would look like on me and decided that was a bad idea. The current sweater is quite nice and will be nice to wear. I'm quite pleased with the fit.

Now I have to just choose what to start next!
