Encouraged by Elizabeth

I am posting a picture of my barely -begun sweater for the current challenge.

Several of my friends are participating in a 10 Shawls in 2010 event this year and since shawls aren't so much in my frame of things (I just don't have the lifestyle to enjoy them), I decided that a 10 Sweaters event was more my style.

I've gone through my stash and found some wonderful wool yarns that are just aging with no chance of being knit up for me or mine, and so, I've decided that A4A will be the recipient of the first of the ten.

The yarn is Patons Impressions hand-dyed wool in a shades of green kettle-dyed looking singles. The pattern is a basic top-down (translate: seamless) turtleneck pullover. The yarn is very soft and while not "outerwear" weight, should be warm. I am aiming for a size 12.

I'll be posting my progress on my blog, and will put a final photo here before I mail.
