Six-Color Sweater, At Last!

At long last, I found some time last night to weave in the yarn ends on the six-color sweater that I've had in progress for what now seems an eternity. I can finally call this a done!

So if you've been wondering what this:



Plus this:



will yield ... the answer is this:





This was made using my Fearless Fibers Sportweight Superwash Merino. I custom dyed the six semi-solid colors specifically for this sweater. I actually dyed two sets of the six colors and so I have another set that I'll list in my Etsy store before too long. I was holding onto it on the off chance that I might need more yarn to complete my project, but I actually had a fair bit left over when I was done.

This is the first sweater I've made for myself in quite some time and I'm reasonably happy with the way it turned out. Not a grand work of art, but a nice and comfy sweater to throw on with a pair of jeans when heading out on a cool fall day.

Now I just need to find time to make some more progress on the felted vest for the Red Sweater KAL!

That is a gorgeous sweater and knowing your soft sumptious yarns, it must feel lovely next to the skin. Wonderful design, you should be very proud!
