The new swatch for Breckon sits before me. At this gauge the fabric has a silken, rustic feel and, although it isn't quite soft enough to be worn against the skin, it has an elegant hand. Count me thrilled.
My imagination isn't quite as active as Terry's, but I do envision wearing this sweater for many years. I just need to get past the 4" of 1x1 ribbing that starts the sleeve.
Amy Christorffers has the pattern start with the sleeves, which isn't a bad tactic. While I'm not one who frets over the knitting of sleeves, the easier part of the sweater will left to do after the sleeves are out of the way. I like the idea and will give it a try.
First, I must tackle the 4 inches of 1x1 rib.
