almost there!

I´ve just cast off one arm and started the second one on my Sahara sweater. This picture was taken a bit before that. Maybe I´ll be finished with it tonight!
It´s turning out great. Yarn, little rock-thingies, pattern, everything.
And it even fits...




The only irritating bit is that I will have a bit over one skein of the Exotica-yarn left. Seeing how a paid a fortune for it, and the kit came with three skeins, I think that the estimate being off by over 1/3 is a bit much. Oh well, I´m sure I will find a worthy cause for it some day.

It also irritates me that I feel I´m off on the diamond rib. It doesn´t look as diamond-y as I´ve seen on other Saharas. Detail in the picture.

I think that buying the original yarn was worth it. The substituted Saharas are lacking that ... sparkly something.

Det var fort gjort! Tror jeg velger å kjøpe originalgarnet jeg også, men spørs om jeg rekker det denne sommeren...
Gleder meg til å se din ferdig og på!

Jeg hadde også endel garn (original garnet) igjen! Spesielt for Simple Knitted Bodice - den må jeg nok rive opp å gjøre om igjen gitt...sukk. Så fin din ble!
