Forgot to say that...



My Gathered Pullover is finished!
It took me exactly 4 weeks from cast-on to put-on and I like it quite a bit! I got lots of compliments (especially on the color) and lots of questions about the cable, like "yeah, but how do you do that?"

The only thing I don't like is that it stinks. I've never actually smelled wet sheep before (it was always sunny when I visited the petting zoo I guess) but my sweater smells worse than wet dog when it's wet. David thinks it smells like perm- I have no idea why he knows what perm solution smells like; I don't think he's ever had a perm. Anyway, I think it's pretty and I'm hoping to wear it 1 or 2 more times before the weather takes a turn for the super-hot and humid.

Your sweater is beautiful..even though you smell like wet sheep and no one will want to be around you.
Love the color.

I can't stand the smell of wet sheep (aka wool). in fact, I think I started hating a co-worker just because he smelled like that.
BUT.....since your blog doesn't have smell-o-vision.....I LOVE your sweater! it and you are just darling looking!
