I'll be honest with you: this project was a disappointment. I love this pattern (Sahara, from stitchdivas). It is beautifully written and fun to knit. And I love the yarn, Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted. I suspect my lack of joy is, once again, the variegated nature of the yarn (this colorway is called Glenwood). I was so excited to get this yarn. The colors are so cheery and pretty. Alas, this finished fabric also looks like colorful tv static to me.
I also ran out of yarn and had to make short sleeves. I generally don't like short sleeves, because my arms are so skinny. In this case, they are particularly unflattering because they are so wide. I would probably like this project better if I could lengthen the sleeves to at least a 3/4 length, but that would require buying more yarn, and I'm not sure it's worth it.
The details, such as they are:
Pattern: Sahara, by stitchdivas
Size: Small (about 1" negative ease--I could have made this smaller)
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Glenwood
Needles: Size 6 Knit Picks Options circular
Modifications: None, really. I made mine longer, but that's not really a modification, since the pattern calls for custom length. I also left off the beads on the edging, since the yarn was busy enough.
I suppose I'll have to give this one some thought. Perhaps we'll revisit it later.
