The sun came out today, but I still couldn't get good photos of my Red Sweater. Anyway, here are some murky ones.
It's the easiest sweater you could ever imagine. Knitted in the round, a few rows of seed stitch, a fair amount of stockinette with a fake side seam, attach the sleeves, some raglan decreases, some more seed stitch, cast off, and you're done! I knitted the seed stitch cuffs back and forth, and attached some buttons to close the gap. The buttons are "fake". They're just sewn on and don't serve any purpose other than decoration.
I really like this sweater. The yarn, Kilcarra Aran Tweed, is absolutely amazing, and it softens a lot when washed. I have no problems with wearing the sweater next to my skin. However, if you're really sensitive to scratchy wool, you might find the yarn itchy.
Another Project Spectrum FIRE-project finished. Yay!
