Making a Splash

Might I present my latest FO?

From Miss Bea's Colours by Louisa Harding knit in Jaeger Matchmaker Merino DK color #656.
I love this sweater. I hated knitting this sweater. The chart was a real pain in the ass to work from since it had all 3 or 4 sizes in one spot with different colored lines to represent each size. Couple that with the fact that the sleeve charting was placed in the center of the back and front charts and well...it was a pain in the ass. Definitely not a pattern for knitting in the car. But I love the way it turned out. It's a really nice pattern. Wish I had the patience to knit it again.

The sweater turned out so great. I must admit that after knitting a few patterns from the Miss Bea books you do get used to the charts being on the one page and overlapped.

The sweater looks great! Don't you just hate patterns like that. Thankfully the result turned out wonderfully.
