The Unravel Sweater

So there's this lovely yarny weekend coming up - Unravel in Farnham Maltings. Last year was my first visit, and this year I'm going back to help Allison with the SweetGeorgia booth. I'm really looking forward to going back to the festival, and since I just happen to have some SweetGeorgia Merino Silk Fine yarn, I've decided to jump in and knit myself an Unravel sweater.
Here it is, in all it's purpley glory: 4 skeins in "Mist". It is so my color.

You may recall a few weeks ago I posted a lovely collage of potential sweaters to knit with this yarn, and you'll be pleased to know I picked...none of them. Instead, I ended up choosing a pattern that I think will perfectly showcase the variegations in this yarn without obscuring any of the design. This is what I'm knitting - Georgia by Jane Richmond.

This sweater is perfect for the yarn - mostly stockinette, with some fab little details, like a purl ridge with a few gathers just above the bust.

I'm loving how it's coming out. I'm not sure how well the yarn will wear (and I suspect I will be wearing this all the time), but I think it's going to be great. A good basic. And hopefully it will be a) done by the third weekend in February and b) I won't run out of yarn. Here's hoping!

I'm really glad I didn't wait until the Opening Ceremonies to cast this on - maybe I'll be done by then and can start something else...
