Fibers on Friday: It's Finished!

I am in love with how this turned out! First I'll show you the pictures, then I'll talk.

I wet blocked the sweater. First time I've ever blocked. I sprayed it with a spray bottle of water and pinned it down to a towel. I guess it made the fibers a little nicer, but probably not as much as it would have had I used a better yarn. More on that later.

This tank was made for my purple loving girl. For those of you that know us personally......THIS is not the purple lovin' girl.

But darn she's adorable! This is rainbow lovin' girl. Purple lovin' girl didn't want to cooperate with pictures.

Rainbow lovin' girl was in a much better mood.

At THIS moment.

Anyway.....the pattern, Eden's Adam, is great. Easy to follow. Easy to knit. LOVE it to pieces! (To see other posts about this sweater, click the Fibers on Friday tag)

The yarn, Berroco Vintage, I'm not 100% thrilled with. It's a blend....not 100% natural....but I got it because it was inexpensive and the salesperson said it was flying off the shelves, so people must be loving it. What I don't love is that it's a little fuzzy in spots. I already know I'll handwash it, but I just hope it holds up well.

I'm off to the yarn store tomorrow to get some pink yarn for the rainbow lovin girl. Perhaps I can talk her into are finicky, though.

Fibers on Friday might be little boring as I set out to make the same exact thing....but that's life with twins :-) Maybe someday I'll get to make something for me to wear!
