Sweater Love

Here's my latest sweater. The original pattern, the Neighborly, was designed by Jennifer for little girls. Larissa turned it into the Big-Girl Neighborly.

This used two skeins of Plymouth Galway worsted in this yummy raisin color, and two skeins of Noro Kureyon in a most delicious colorway (251, I think). This was the first time I've ever used Noro, and it was just so much fun to watch the colors change. Every time I sat down to work on this, I would rave to Rob about how much I loved the colors.
I finished it Monday night; washed and blocked it yesterday, and I'm wearing it today! I love, love, love this sweater.

A big thank-you goes out to the ladies who created and shared this pattern. This has me thinking...with Valentine's day coming up, maybe my little girls could use a little Neighborly love of their own!

Meg, it's awesome on you! i'm so glad you love it - you totally made my day. i was a bit nervous posting a pattern that i knit for myself - without having anyone else test knit it. but i'm nervous no more - it fits you beautifully. LOVE the color combo you chose.
