I didn't expect to finish a sweater before returning to the UK, but I did! This is Caitlin (kind of).
I made a LOT of mods to this pattern. Firstly, the pattern is written in pieces and I did it all seamlessly in the round. Second I altered the charts slightly. Third, I made up my own shaping and added bust darts. But at its heart, it's still the same sweater.
I'm so very pleased with this sweater. It's only a few months ago that I started it and since the majority of the body is plain, it went very quickly. The body of the sweater is done in millspun yarn - Lang Shetland Soft in orange. But, all the colorwork sections are done in my own handspun yarn, in Shetland yarn in natural colors plus a little bit of orange merino/silk. So, it's like training wheels to a handspun sweater - I didn't have to spin an ENTIRE sweater, but I still get to show off my handspun.
The Bohus-esque colorwork yoke of the sweater does a good job of flattering my shape, I think, as I had read about in Fit to Flatter. Amy Herzog might have recommended that I remove the colorwork section from my hips, but I like the balance it gives. At any rate, I'm almost itching to knit a 'real' Bohus now... maybe someday!
