Blue Tomato finished (finally)

Sorry about the photo (took it myself!)... But you get the idea. I started this waaaaayyy back in July! Or was it June? I used just over 3 skeins of Cotton-Ease in Lake, and a small amount of 1 skein of Maize. The cotton-ease is actually quite nice, but I do wish they had more vibrant colors. This was my first try at stranded knitting, and I think I need a bit more practice! I can see the areas where I pulled the yarn too tightly (I'm a thrower, but I tried continental for the last few rows to speed things up). I could also use some practice picking up stitches, which I did rather inconsistently around the collar. All in all....it did go quickly, considering the time I put in. And I'm ready for another sweater!

Wow - and what's the problem with the photo?!

Try the Intoxicating next. ;)

Love the colour and the look. Will trade you my purple tomato for that one!
