a weekend debut...

Pattern: Leaf Lace Sweater by Teva Durham

Yarn: Lion Brand Kool Wool (50% Merino Wool, 50% Acrylic); color: Claret. I used exactly 10 skeins. I only had scraps left when I was done.

Needles: Denise interchangeable needles, size 13.

Size: I made the medium size because my gauge wasn't exactly 10 st per inch as the pattern calls for.

I love the construction and design of this sweater. And, the Kool Wool is much nicer than I expected. It's very soft. The only thing that I would think about changing is the length of the sleeves. If I were to make this sweater again, I would shorten them by about two inches.
