I got my sweater all blocked and dry in time to enter it in the fair! I took it down to Puyallup today, along with Kate's little yellow sweater. It's kind of fun to drive onto the fairgrounds while they're getting things set up. And the ladies at the Home Arts section are always so nice. I took Andy along with me and he got to flirt with everybody.
The pattern is from Let's Knit #16 (one of the Japanese books that I got). It works up quickly but I would definitely call it an advanced pattern. It only shows half of each piece, so you have to extrapolate the turns on the other side.
I used DMC Senso (cotton/wool blend) and a G hook with pretty loose tension. I think it's just a teeny bit too big. But it'll work.
Update: I got a blue ribbon! Woo hoo!
I get a lot of hits on this post from people looking for crochet sweaters... if you have any questions feel free to email me! helenajole at netscape dot net
