This took me a while and I picked this sweater to knit because I loved the yarn. Started on December 20th and finished on March 26th. I would say I worked on it on and off. I used 1225 yards of Debbie Bliss Pure Cashmere yarn (let's hope I don't felt it). I added an extra inch to the sleeves and they still ended up 3/4 length. Guess it is perfect for spring time. The only other issue I have is that the yarn came in 25 yard balls. A lot of loose ends to weave in.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
