I almost wondered if this yarn was cursed. This is the third pattern I tried to knit with it and even the second try at this particular pattern. This is the Liv Sweater by Carrie Bostick Hoge, kind of. I left off the center front increases at the point where I stopped the raglan increases. I lost the basic swingy nature, but in this thick cotton, it was just too much bulk. I do highly recommend the Blue Sky Cotton Worsted, so soft and a little pearly.
Here you can see that I kept the short row shaping. The Sunday short row method is really very nice, I hadn't done that before. Elbow length sleeves are courtesy of not enough yarn. I actually weighed the last ball.
Here you can clearly see the color pooling. I know you're supposed to knit from alternating balls, but to me that's no fun. I'd rather enjoy the knitting and deal with the pooling. Did I mention I overdyed this yarn. Seems like everything gets dyed these days. The original color was pretty and flattering to my coloring. It also felt flat and boring and a little twee if I'm honest. This turquoise is a little outside what I generally go for these days, but it's just so beautiful to look at. I love carrying this one around and just admiring the colors.
