Last Saturday I made a trip to one of my 3 Local Yarn Shops. I haven't visited this one in awhile and I didn't have anything special in mind. A sample of this Berocco Sweater was on display.
Berocco Nimbus Pattern
I immediately knew that this was a must have for my wardrobe. Perfect for late winter and early spring, the short sleeves are just my style.
The yarn is Berocco Peruvia Quick. A bulky weight yarn worked on Size 11 needles with 3 stitches and 4 rows to the inch. I knew that this would be a finished garment quickly.
Next to find the perfect color and I did. Here's the wonderful color name Auquamarina.
And finally, the button that will change this from an ordinary sweater into something truly magnificant
I finished the back before the weekend was over. I knit both front pieces at once during the week and now I'm ready to start the sleeves.
|Handpainted Wood Button |
Hope to finish it in the next two weeks. The first day of Spring is Wednesday, March 20th and I hope to wear my sweater to celebrate the day.
