Wendy 5 ply Guernsey wool in shade 674, the lighter of the traditional blues, was used for this sweater started quite some time ago. The pattern is an old Plymouth Yarn Company aran pullover #IN34. I was trying to use the Wendy in place of an alpaca and and just adjust the size knit to fit me instead of a man. Well...... even though I swatched and the swatch was perfect, the sweater was less than. Ended up at 9 stitches to an inch on size #3 US circular. Sweater measures 36" around - not in this lifetime!!
So as pretty as the pattern is, it will get ripped, re-swatched and hopefully used for the KAL "Beadwork" to start this fall. I HAVE to learn to remeasure as I go along more often. At least the cable patterns really pop with a tight gague and this yarn.
