I love top down pullover

Yup, the Cable-Down Raglan is DONE!!! I love the sweater, because there was no seaming, (well a little bit to sew the underarm) made me finish even faster.



The yarn that I used was Misti International Pima Cotton/Silk. I have used about 6.5 skeins of it. I like the color of it. It's soft, but it seems to have lots of lints even I haven't washed it yet. All in all, I am proud of myself that I can finish it before the semester starts. I will wear it next week no matter what, even it's going to be 60s degrees...

Last night Andrew and I went to watch Cloverfield with my friend and her husband last night. The movie supposed to start at 10pm. Previews last about 15-20 mins. And we left around 11-ish. I think I was interested into the content of the movie, but the camera just moved so much and so fast that it made me really sick. I think I have watched about 20 mins of the movie, and listened to it for the rest of time. But still, my friend and I were both so sick that we have decided to go. So people who can't knit during car rides, please don't watch this movie.

It's BEAUTIFUL! I love it and it looks great on you.

Cloverfield - not for me. Thanks for the tip.

The sweater is gorgeous!

And yes, I'd heard that about Cloverfield, but it's good to hear it reinforced. Puking's bad enough -- paying $10 to puke is worse. ;-)

I said the same thing to Dave. I told him that people with motion sickness are not going to be able to make it through this movie!

Love Love Love the Sweater!!! It looks so beautiful on you! Great color ...

Thanks for the tip about Cloverfield. Of course, we've had our current Netlix movie since September so most likely it would be years until we would get a chance to see Cloverfield ...

That sweater is gorgeous! I think I might have to add that to my queue! I'll make sure I don't make it in purple! :)

Oh Phoebe that sweater is beautiful. I can't believe how fast you knit it, and it looks absolutely great. Sorry to hear the movie made you ill -- I really want to see it, but just don't know how my stomach might take it :)

Darn it, I left a comment but it didn't save, so here I go again...

That is a beautiful sweater! You are *such* a great knitter! Bummer about the pilling, though...that is supposed to be a great yarn, too!

Are you wearing it to SnB this week? Please? Pretty please?
