Wicked almost ready to try on!




I went through my stash and decided on Elsebeth Lavold Angora in peacock blue. The swatch was almost perfect on size 7. I love the way it looks and feels so far. It looks blue/purple in the picture, but it is actually a perfect teal. I love this yarn and have only used it for baby sweaters in the past, so am a very excited to be able to wear it. It is so soft and although it is fuzzy you can still see the cable detail. I am only 4 rows from taking the sleeves off the needles. Then I can try it on and see how it is going to fit. This is my first top down sweater. I am a little nervous about the fit. I'll know soon enough.

are you concerned b/c it looks narrow? I'm about 4 inches into mine & I think it like it will be VERY snug, but I'm holding my breath and going on faith for now - update the blog once you try it on! btw - lovely color.
