a pullover I can’t wear yet

I also finished the Charlestown pullover by Cheryl Cole ! This is such a beautiful sweater, and the size came out perfectly! The arms are a bit tight, but I think they’ll stretch a bit with wear, and the rest is fantastic. Close-fitting up top, and then looseish on the bottom. I can’t wear it for more than a hot second because it’s sweltering and humid right now, but I can’t WAIT til it gets cool and I can wear this alpaca-wool cream goodness.

It took longer than expected since I was busy with work, but in a way I’m glad I got to savor this sweater. It had been so long since I had so loved the look of any sweater. All the patterns I see have a samey-ness, or they’re just not my style. It’s rare to find something that hits my sweet spot of pattern love. So once I saw this, I knew I had to throw out the rest of my queue to just throw this on the needles. I’m so glad I did!

Now… I can’t get this thing any where near coffee or wine…
