Completed UFO

For the past couple of weeks I have been working on finishing up some projects that I had been working on. The first of these projects is a neat sweater totally done in garder stitch. As you can see in the pictures I used a variegated wool/mohair blend from Alchemy called Lonestar. The neat thing about this sweater is that there is minimal sewing. After completing the front and back I sewed the shoulder seems and then picked up for each of the sleeves. After they are complete I then sewed up the arm and side seems. Its kind of hard to see but there is not collar. Its a simple round neck that is done by picking up stitches and binding off others. The pattern comes from a new book that I just love called "The Natural Knitter"
