I'm back from Israel, and have a knitting surprise to share! It wasn't all-work-no-knitting, after all, despite my blog silence. I had enough free time to whip up a lovely version of Heidi Kirrmaier's Buttercup sweater. I followed her modifications for the second version with longer sleeves and ribbing bands. I also knit it in a smaller gauge with Frog Tree Alpaca Fingering weight wool. I'm extremely pleased with how the sweater fits, and the clarity of the instructions.
Here's the ravelry link to the sweater, for you knitters out there.
