Completed project: Bell Sleeve Sweater

This weekend I finished my second sweater. The pattern is the "To Dye For" sweater from the Stitch and Bitch book. I used the knitpicks suri dream yarn. The pattern is super simple.


I'm pretty happy with the results. I wish the yarn weren't so fuzzy, but it's very soft and surprisingly warm (thanks to the alpaca fiber, I'm sure) for something that is so airy.

If I knit this pattern again (which I probably will) I'll choose a less fuzzy yarn, make the body a bit longer, the neck line a bit smaller and maybe even knit the body in a slightly smaller size.
