Another sweater

I feel like such a show off to report another finished sweater in just a week, but I must confess that this sweater has been 90% completed for a while, but I had to put it aside and concentrate solely on the aran in order to get it done for Christmas.

Here is the Sirdar Denim Chunky Sweater:

Pattern: Sirdar #8459 Denim Chunky Sweater
Yarn: Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky, 8 balls
Needles: US 9 and 10.5
Mods: I modified the pattern to do it in the round. Let me tell you, after seaming the aran, having no seams to do on this sweater was a relief. I also added waist shaping.
Thoughts: It came out a bit longer than I would have liked, but it is a very warm sweater and I was very grateful for it warmth and length today as I ventured out in the freezing freezing cold to get food for my family and some yarn for me (the necessities of life, right?).


Here are pictures of me modeling it. Can you tell that I've also been working on a secret project?


Yes, I am pregnant again. Baby number 2 will be born in June.

Congrats on *both* projects! :D

The sweater reminds me of Diana's Phildar sweater - http://bestitched.typepad.com/bestitched/2005/11/phildar_sweater.html
