No One Mourns the Wicked

Pattern: Wicked from Zephyr Style, Size 32-35"
Yarn: 9 skeins Knit Picks Shine Worsted
Needles: Knit Picks Options US Size 7
Started: 2/20/07
Finished: 3/2/07
This yarn was way too drapey for this project. The sweater was a little big when I finished knitting it. But after I tried to block it, it became absolutely HUGE. So, I threw it in the dryer with a couple pairs of old jeans, and shrunk it up a bit. I still don't think the yarn was the right choice; it just doesn't cling like I would like it to. I really wish it was more fitted, especially in the waistband. Maybe I should have made a size smaller even, who knows. But, it's not too bad for my first adult size sweater, right?

I'd say it's awesome for your first sweater! It looks waaaay better than my first adult sweater, I'll tell ya that. The color is great and the details pop out nicely. Great job!

Great color - you did a fantastic job. You could wear it over a white button down shirt - very hip and it would tighten up the fit a bit.
