Pattern: Aidez by Cirilia Rose
Yarn: BFL Bulky from Yarn2Dye4 (no longer on their site)
Needle: See notes
Notes: Oh Aidez. I diligently swatched before leaving for Madrona. I made a good sized swatch. Then started knitting a few weeks later. The pattern calls for a 10.5 needle which I think I used to swatch and knit the back of the sweater. But somehow when I had completed the back, both fronts and 3/4 of both sleeves I noticed that I was using a 9. What happened? I have no idea. I really, honestly don't have a clue whether I knit the whole thing on the wrong size needle or just parts. The ironic thing is I used up all my yarn so if I had used the correct needle size I would have run out of yarn. The resulting sweater is too small as you can see from the photos. The body is okay but the sleeves, which many knitters have said come out too small so I made adjustments to get bigger sleeves, are still too small and the fit through the shoulders is snug.
It's a lovely sweater though. The yarn is soft and creamy. The design is beautiful. Sigh.
