Now back to my current project: February Sweater. It is a free pattern that I found on Ravelry by Pamela Wynne called "February Lady Sweater." I strolled across this one day and noticed that it wasn't too difficult and doesn't require a lot of yarn. Two things that I look for in knitting projects, the latter because I'm on a super tight budget right now. It can't be too difficult because it currently has 12,629 projects linked to it on Ravelry, by some of the 3 million users. Holy crap! It's a pretty popular pattern!
I am using KnitPicks Wool of the Andes yarn in colorway Lava Heather. Very pretty color that I can't determine if it's red, pinkish or purple yet, but I like it. So far the knitting has been easy; I feel that I probably should have knitted more on the yoke part before starting the lattice pattern, but it fits just fine right now. I have three buttonholes now, but I'm thinking I might sew one up when I'm finished so there's only two...it looks a little odd. I wish I could have it finished by tomorrow, since it will only be 39 degrees here! I'll aim to have it finished by April 1st though.
