Spring has sprung but I still have some wintry knits to blog! Last one for 13 Sweaters in 2013.
With this sweater I wanted to play it safe timewise. Big yarn and big needles meant I could easily finish it by the end of the year. Initially, I had planned to pick up bright turquoise for the contrasting color but the LYS didn’t have any. In fact, they didn’t have two balls in stock of any of the colors I liked for contrast. On a whim, I chose two colors, one ball each, hoping they would go together nicely. And I think it works. :)
