Instant Sweater

Okay, this is the first top-down sweater I have done. I must say, I like top down--cast on, knit, cast off, instant sweater. No sewing, no seams. This is also my first e-bay wool, from 100purewool. Gorgeous, cloud soft, 100% merino from Uruguay. It's delicious. When I first opened the box, The Boy's reaction (after rubbing his face agains the skeins) was "Oh, it's so soft...". Look at the lightning bolts around the middle--you never know what you're going to get with hand dyed!

"Top Down for toddlers" by Cabin Fever ( That's the basic sweater pattern, and it was so easy and so fast (4 or 4.5 mm needles, I think, and I used 100purewool from ebay).
