Perla



 I recently finished knitting Perla by Joji Locatelli. The pattern was gifted to me for Christmas in 2012 by a fellow LSG member. The yarn is Encore Worsted from Plymouth Yarn Company. Yes, it took me a long time to knit it. I took a very long break last summer after knitting the body. In the last month and a half I decided to push through and get the sleeves and neckline finished.

My pictures are horrible and do not show the sweater well at all. There is a lot of sweater there and it will be great for when the weather is colder. Unfortunately, I am not happy with the way my sleeves came out and the edges roll even after an aggressive blocking. Still, I have a bit of pride that it is finished and that 'hey, I made this' need to show off.
In 2012 LSG started a December-only thread for the Fairy Hoar Mother. There you can semi-anonymously gift patterns or other items to members of LSG or any Ravelry  member. Fairy Hoar Mother did so well in 2012 that it was revived for December 2013 as well. It's a nice little feel-good at Christmastime thread.
