Sweater on Hold

WK asked me about the sweater I'm not knitting (due to the tardiness of the yarn), so I'm going to give what details I can. It is from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2007, but for some reason the Vogue Knitting site is down, so I can't even try to link to the errata. Well, I'll put in the link, and perhaps someday it will work, how's that? Anyhow, I was/am planning on using RYC Cashsoft Aran, by Rowan, which is not what the pattern calls for, but I'm fine with that. I ordered the yarn in June, on the same day (or at least in the same week) I finished TL's sweater. I planned on knitting it all up in August, and have it ready to wear by now. Arrgghh.

So, I decided to use the Cashsoft Aran, which is a blend of
Wool, Cashmere, and Microfiber. It is lovely and soft. I'm going to make the sweater in black, and leave it in my office for two reasons: 1) it is sometimes freezing inside, 2) I don't always remember to dress like a grown-up on days that I have to have meetings with "upstairs people." this will do nicely in both situations.

Well, the yarn looks nice. Now I just need to see when the VK site is up so I can see it. It sounds very practical to both keep you warm and look like a grownup.
