Dreamer

(photo by RT - styling by HT)

Pattern: Dreamer by Wenlan Chia from Twinkle's Mohair Designs
Yarn: Twinkle Handknits Kid Mohair #59 Storm
Comments: I blocked this sweater to spec, and it still seems short to me. Not that I mind, really. I think it is still adorable. There were no mistakes in the pattern that I could find.
This sweater was a bit of a challenge to me, so I'm proud of it.
The Twinkle Mohair is VERY scratching before washing. After handwashing it, though, it becomes much softer. The price is wonderful as well ($6 for 310 yds). The whole sweater cost me $24 retail!!

Absolutely! I agree. The sweater is very cute. I would add that I think that is a particularly lovely photo of someone who says she is unphotogenic.

Beautiful! You and the sweater both:) The length looks great on you (if you were shaped more like me you would definitely have to add more, ugh.....)

Looks good! I've been reading your blog ever since you posted your Venus sweater (my design) from Knitscene. I just saw the new issue with your pic "on the street" in it. Very cute!
