I finished the sweater out of Lana Grossa Due Chine with the yarn I had. I call it Corsica.

Corsica 2

The neckline is a bit lower than it will be in the pattern…


Here’s a sideview in which you can see the hip increases…

Look familiar?

The 2nd Sweater...

I’m knitting the sweater again in Knit Picks Panache, an amazingly soft (and affordable!) yarn, 40% Baby Alpaca, 20% Cashmere, 20% Silk, and 20% Extrafine Merino, in colorway Moss, so that others may follow suit… since Due Chine has been discontinued.  It’s not so bad.  I really love this sweater and won’t mind having two.  It’s a pretty quick knit too!
