Folded sweater really late Tuesday night. Well, more like early morning. I am so happy that it is finished. This sweater took a month to knit from start to finish. I was a bit hesitant to knit a sweater in sock yarn. I figured it would just go on and on, forever. Surprisingly, this sweater went a lot quicker than I thought it would. Bonus!
I wasn't too sure how the yarn colros were going to pool, but it turned out okay for me. Not bad at all. Since the colors are variations of red it seemed to work. Had it been brighter differences in the red, it may have changed my opinion.
Also, I love the yarn I chose to use. I used 3 skeins of Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in "gypsy." I never really had a favorite sock yarn. I usually enjoy knitting with most sock yarns...equal opportunity, you know? I am going to say that I really love Stroll Tonal. It's my favorite. I have used it for a handful of projects in about three different colors. (goldrush, gypsy and blue yonder) Love it!

Verdict: Love, love, love! Great pattern. I am glad I decided to knit this sweater. I love the style, it fits nicely and I am completely happy with it. I would knit this one again. I will model the sweater in some pics soon. I want to wear this one out...Did I mention I love it?
