sweater in progress

had to rip back all of yesterdays work...:(
the pockets didn't look like i wanted them to...
so here is what it looked yesterday night






 and here we can see the same sweater this morning






restarted without the pockets, 15 cm to go




think i will add shortrows to shape the bottom.
the length of the sleeves is not decided yet,
but i tend to longsleeves, .......we'll see


took new pics of my mandel testknit
think i will go with the other testknitters and start a second.

for this time i'll change a few things:
lighter yarn
smaller saddles
less bodyincs
more rows for the pleats
and

stripes!

  2. Love the entire look! I've seen you wear that scarf before (I follow you on Ravelry)...can you give me a hint about the yarn? It looks like a pattern I recently bought that calls for Noro Taiyo. What did you use? The color is gorgeous!!
