Yarn Along: Stone Cottage...

 
  

 
 

 
 
I bought six skeins of Cascade 220 in charcoal gray (What an unimaginative name!  How about Stone Cottage?) around Thanksgiving.  I knew that I wanted the yarn to become a sweater, but wasn't sure what pattern to use.  I was tooling around on the internet on Friday night (freshly off the glow of finishing my Audry Hat) and spotted the Neckdown Boat Neck Pullover.  I cast on at soon as the pattern printed and was able to finish all of the neckline ribbing before I fell asleep.  I divided for the sleeves on Sunday afternoon and now only have about six inches left before I cast off the body!  I can't believe it!

I'm reading a few books currently (most notably, The Scent of Holiness), but am listening to the Serial Podcast at night while I knit.

Edited to Add:  If you read an earlier version of this Yarn Along (or came across it when it looked a bit crazy with huge pictures and no text), I apologize.  I was adding a photograph with my phone and accidentally deleted the content of the post and had to re-create it.  So sorry about that!

I love the colour too, and the pattern. I can't believe you can knit so quickly.

I bought the same exact yarn to make my husband a sweater vest and I'm just loving it! You are right, stone cottage is a much better name :-).
