Third time’s the charm!

Please excuse all the threads.  I wanted to take pictures of this as soon as I finished it.  This is my third time making St. James.  The second one is a Christmas gift, so there are no online picture of it.  Like the others, I used knitpicks.com Comfy Worsted.  Having a wool allergy means that it’s hard to find nice yarn and the knitpicks.com Comfy line feels great in the hands, is affordable and comes in lots of great colors.   I knit this one up exactly as the first one, with one except.  At the suggestion of a good friend, I switched to a smaller needle.  WOW!  That made a huge difference in fit.  It was a nice sweater before, but this version is fantastic!  I love wearing it and feel great in it.  If I had a closet full of them, I’d wear them everyday.  The only drawback is the monotony of stockinette.  After knitting 3 St.James sweaters in a row, I need a break.

BTW, the website that hosted the St James pattern is no longer around.  You can find it here http://web.archive.org/web/20110723045733/http://www.metapostmodernknitting.com/MetaPatterns/StJames/tabid/86/Default.aspx
