This Lopi yarn sheds an unbelievable amount of fuzz with handling. I'm covered, the sofa's covered and there are fuzzy lint bunnies lined up along the skirting boards of the front hall. "Is this sweater likely to be finished soon?" Gavin enquired.
Maybe not soon, after all I only started it the other day. I've decided to skip the colourwork pattern on the cuffs. I don't know about you, but I just hate catching my fingers on yarn floats on the inside of a sweater sleeve as I put it on. Besides, I'm already starting to worry about whether I'll be short yardage on the contrast colours. Better save what I have for the yoke pattern!
I think I'd better plan to knit monogamously on this sweater until it's finished. And then I think I'd better plan to dust and vacuum.
