Fibers on Friday: Shalom!

Shalom, friends!

My lovely sweater, called Shalom, (pattern by Meghan Mcfarlane) is finished. Take a look-see:


I'm very happy with it. It was a nice, easy knit. I knit it up exactly according to the pattern. I used Eco Wool, which is perfect for this project because you only need one skein....NO ends to weave in! Just the start and the finish ends....perfect! I LOVE the waist shaping, although I'd like the front sides to close a little bit more...but that may be fixable with blocking. I highly recommend this sweater!

My Fibers on Friday might be a little off the beaten path next week because I have these goodies which I can't wait to get my hands on:

Purple lovin' girl is getting a quilt!


Now on to Fibers on Friday! This fun little party dedicated to knitting and crocheting.

  15. Seems like it's been eons since I could participate in Fibers on Friday! So glad to be able to stop by. I love the sweater! Coincidentally, I printed that pattern a few weeks ago, and then was a little wishy washy about casting on. Glad to see how well it turned out for you. Now, I am inspired!
