I can't quite speak about what happened in the Bronx last night. Give me some time to grieve.
But there's a finished sweater!
It's done! And too hot to try on, so you'll have to make do with pictures of the Tilted Duster lying about in repose.
Pattern: Tilted Duster, by Norah Gaughan in Interweave Knits Fall 2007 (featured on the cover)
Yarn: discontinued Rowan Magpie Aran, in color 315 (Mulled), 7.5 skeins
Needles: size 8 Addi circulars (down two sizes from what was recommened)
Buttons: from Tender Buttons
Modifications: Well, I cut a few stitiches from the skirt, because I just couldn't get that many pick-ups from the back of the sweater. But other than that, I found the patter really well-written.
It's ready to wear to Rhinebeck! Cooler weather is supposedly arriving - starting tomorrow.
