Harbinger of Haggis

Harriet is basically done. I still need to find buttons and it needs just a light steam on the seams and button bands. All I can say is: I LOVE IT!

The yarn at this gauge is so light and soft. Works well with the lacey pattern and the drape is fabulous. This is going to be a staple piece of clothing in my wardrobe. So while I still need buttons, and I can't get a decent photo of it, I'm calling it done for now.

Project stats:

Pattern: Harriet (yes yes, it's from A Fine Fleece... project #5). Oh and yes, I couldn't help but think of So I Married An Ax Murderer the entire time I was working on this sweater!

Yarn: Elann Highland Donegal in licorice

Problems with the pattern: None

Changes to the pattern: None

Overall impressions: I am very happy. The fit is relaxed, it's lightweight and the black will go with a lot of my wardrobe. I did struggle a bit with the lace pattern with I first started this, but then when I picked it up after a break, it clicked and I was able to plow thru the rest very quickly.

Now to just find the perfect buttons for it and some cool weather!
