Last week, I finished my Olympic project, Twist.  We had a nice sunny day (and I had a new haircut) so R and I went outside with the camera for a few photos:

Twist Front

Twist Back

Twist Collar

Twist Buttons

Pattern: Twist

Yarn: Dream in Color Classy in the colorway Midnight Derby

Needles: Knitpicks Options size 6 and 7 (used magic loop for sleeves)

Time to Knit: Began project on September 1, 2009 so 6.5 months – this was my 2010 Winter Olympics project in the event WIPs Dancing.  I did not finish on time but I was close!  At least it motivated me to pick up the needles again and finish my sweater.

Notes: I chose to mostly follow directions on this project.  I went with the collar version instead of the hooded one.  I wanted the structure of seams so I knit the separate pieces – however, I knit the sleeves in the round and used the EZ method of ‘fake seams’ to help give them structure.  The buttons I found at Joann Fabrics.


I think it’s safe to say this sweater makes me happy (or possibly it’s just the photographer…or both).  ;o)

    Oh, that is so beautiful! That color would look great on me — but I am NOT shopping. Lovely to see your smiling face, too!
