Saw this pattern by Kim Hargreaves in Winter Blooms and totally fell in love. It would've been done months ago if I hadn't knit both sleeves at once WRONG and put it in time out for a while. Anyway, it's been better, and I'm really happy with it. Yeah!
The yarn is Rowan Lima, the softest, squishiest, yummiest fiber ever. I made the size 36, lengthened the body by 2" and used about 9.5 skeins. Other changes are that I did 4 rows seed stitch around the cuff instead of ribbing. Same around the neck - did 4 rows seed stitch, then 3 rows reverse stockinette, binding off knitwise on the wrong side.
We have Lima in lots of really good, wearable colors.
