Finished - Angelina Sweater

I finally got around to taking some pictures this weekend. First up is Angelina. no, you do not get to see my head. Head and legs are cut off. And note that these were taken of myself in the mirror. Sorry if they look like crap. I'm really pleased with how this sweater turned out. I wish it were maybe a couple of inches longer but I'm not going to complain.

Yarn and Pattern from White Lies Designs. The yarn is a wool/mohair blend in an ivory/eggshell color. Needles used were size 5 clovers, and size 7 and size 10 Addis.

Very pretty! Seeing yours really makes me want to make one of my own - it looks like such a great 'too cold in the office' sweater, that would pair with almost anything and not look out of place. How does the yarn feel when knitted and worn? It seemed a little scratchy in person, if I recall correctly. Did the yarn pack seem like a good value, or if you were to do it again would you buy something else?

I started off thinking the wool was kind of rough. Strangely, half way through the miles of ribbing, it started to grow soft. It is pretty warm to wear around for your torso. The lacey portion on the arms let air flow through which wasn't so good.
