Raspberry Sweater

I've been working rather enthusiastically on my sweater this week. I love the yarn, I love the pattern, I love how quickly it seems to be knitting up.

I also love the raspberry color I chose and the fact that the pattern looks much more complicated than the simple k2-p2 pattern foundation suggests. I'm knitting a small section now that prepares you for the short row shaping of the collar and sleeves.

The edge naturally takes on a scalloped look from the ribbed pattern which I think has a really nice look.

I'm pretty excited for how the rest of it shapes out. It is knit side to side rather than top to bottom or vice versa. I can't wait to finish this, even though I have a long way to go.
