The San Francisco Pullover is done. It didn't get any better with finishing. It's just not me. It fits okay, but simply not my style.
Ironically, I'm actually glad I used crappy acrylic yarn for it. I consider it to just be a big swatch. If I had made it using an expensive hand dyed yarn, I wouldn't be too happy. Instead I have about $12 in yarn and some time. No biggie. I now realize that this just isn't a sweater I'll do again.
Pattern: San Francisco Shirttail by Just One More Row
Yarn: cheap acrylic yarn from stash
Problems with the pattern: Jill's patterns are always easy to do and I didn't find any errors in the pattern.
Changes to the pattern: did some playing with the neckline, but it's pretty much the pattern as written.
Overall impressions: this sweater just isn't me. I wanted it as just an around the house sweater (can't clean toilets in cashmere!) but I'm just not comfortable in it. Simply not a flattering style for me.
Okay, one more thing off my list. Actually, I updated my 2007 finished list and I'm doing better than I expected... 7 projects finished so far. I should have a few more small projects finished up next week and I still hope to get Matt's Natural Beauty Fair Isle done soon, too. Plus his SOA and my Fall Back Cardigan... I still might break down and get a simple st. st. project going. It's nice to have a basic project handy.
Well, I'm off... gotta teach a class this afternoon!
Keep on Knittin'!
