The Side Impact Sweater and an Autumn Scarf

I finished this in almost record time… less than a month. I aways do this with projects and fibers I love. I have decided that I am absolutely in love with Art Fibers Rush, and I’m planning to do one more sweater in it. Probably another pullover. I’m really happy with the drape of the fabric and even it’s warmth despite the fact that this sweater has a lot of lace openwork in it in the arms and sides.

I was also able to finish a scarf just in time for my brother’s birthday.  It’s knit from Andy II Merino purchased at the Close Knit knitting store on Alberta here in in Portland. I really love this yarn, it’s spendy, but it’s worth it for a nice present for someone special.

While I was at the store I was also able to pick up two skeins of Imperial Stock yarn… in a great heathered blue. Love this yarn. I also love that it’s locally based, and the colors are really beautiful. For the amount of yarn you get 200 yards of worsted 2-ply at little over 11 dollars a skein is quite a deal for locally grown and milled yarn.
