the SECRET is OUT

May i present the Secret sweater. Frankly speaking its not much of a secret, if you have bought the yarns from elann.com. i had the photo taken just after installing the zipper. got the zipper on Friday from Daiso, a Japanese thrift store. coincidentally the yarns were from there there too.

Needle: 4.5mm (US 7)for ribbing, and 5mm (US8)

i've been wanting to make this sweater forEVER. i just got a copy of the pattern and hopefully will get to it soon. good job!

beautiful work. what kind of yarn did you use for this sweater? i have the pattern for it, but didn't get the yarn from elann due to the limited color options they have left. did you knit to gauge for this or did you alter the pattern to your gauge?

This is really beautiful! I'm thinking of starting to take up knitting again. Would this be a tough project to start on, and how do I get the pattern? Thanks!
