Marseilles Pullover

I was knitting this sweater while knitting the log cabin blanket. I am not sure why I took on two large project at the same time. It was like running a marrathon, only to have another marrathon to fall back on. I went a long time without having that satisfaction of finishing something. However the payoff was a good one. Here are the details:

What: Marseilles Pullover, Interweave Knits Summer 06, size small

Yarn: Knit Picks, Swish Superwash in Light Coral

Needles: Size 7 and Size 8 bamboo

For: Myself :o)

Modifications: Added three inches to each sleeve length and an extra twist on the waist band (about 4 rows).

This is the first time I used the swish superwash, and to my surprise it is not only washable, but also quite soft. After all the work I put into the sweater I was happy it came out so well!
