I'm all FLAKed out!
Finally, Finally, Finally! I'm finally finished with my FLAK sweater. I started this on the first of January and its now drying on my bed after I blocked it. Now I have not been steadily working on it. I have had to stop to work on other knitting "jobs" so that's why it has taken me so long to finish. OK so that's my story and I'm sticking to it. I really wanted finish this in time to show it at the fair. Which is great as I need to turn stuff in on the 15th. I have to say I really love how it turned out. I decided to make the neck a simple roll instead of a ribbing. I also made sure to do both the bottom and cuff rippings so that it would come out of the cables. When you are doing a cable sweater I really suggest that you keep an eye on this as it makes it look more finished. I used Alchemy's sanctuary in the color of teal. If you have not tried any of Alchemy's yarn you really need to treat your self. They have the neatest colorways and nearly solids that I have ever seen. The best part of this sweater is that it fits perfectly. Now I can't wait until it cools off so that I can wear it.
