Who's that Lady?

My February Lady Sweater is Complete! I managed to sneak a photo shoot in between rain storms today and here she is!
Pattern: February Lady Sweater by Pamela Wynne (AKA Flint Knits)
Size: Small
Needles: Size 9 and Size 10.5 for the Cast Off
Yarn: Rowan Calmer 6 skeins
Modifications: Not many, but I did try a suspended cast-off for the first time. Very stretchy! Usually my bind off is way too tight, so I was happy to find this method.

I am very happy with how this sweater came out. The Rowan Calmer is so soft to work with and wear, and the sweater is light enough for spring/fall or even a cool summer night. I may redo the buttons, as they pull a little bit. This sweater has turned me onto Elizabeth Zimmerman and I recently picked up Knitting Without Tears and the Knitters Almanac.

It looks fantastic! The Calmer looks like it has great stitch definition, too.

Kniting Without Tears is one of my favorite knitting books. EZ's seamless sweaters are great for guys -- I'm on my third right now, for my dad. So if your husband expresses any interest in in a sweater ...

That's beautiful. I love the fit and length, and especially the colour.
