this is knitted with 2+ skeins of brown sheep cotton fleece, and i would knit with this yarn again. it held up great, inspite of my constant ripping and reknitting. i decided to finish my armhole and neck edges with 'crab stitch' (that's a backwards single crochet). i had left my center neck stitches on holders, to pick up later and knit the edging as the pattern described. i tried to crab stitch the free loops, and it looked awful, so i ended up binding off those stitches.
so, what's my reward? (i'm motivated by what's next?!)
of course i have my racy red rowan sweater to work on, and my sideways sock, and my stocking, and the phoebe capelet ... but, i want to cast on for something new!
