Holy Freaking Cow--Venezia is done at last!
We interrupt this sock challenge to bring you the moment you've all been waiting for.
Closer, but with the colors a little more yellow.
Detail shot: See my seams? Not bad, huh?
Especially considering they used to look like this:

Pattern: Venezia Pullover by Eunny Jang, IK Fall Winter 2006.
Yarn: Jamieson's 2-ply Spindrift in all the lovely recommended colors, all ten of them
Needles: US 2s in various lengths for the fair isle part, US1s for the hems and neckband.
Started December 24, 2006 and finished May 11, 2007
See all the entries that mention the Venezia Pullover.
Mods: I made the bottom a little longer than the pattern called for, though apparently still not long enough for my low-rise jeans. I do also plan to wear it with skirts that come up considerably higher.
Maybe I should have tightened the belt a bit?
This sweater has been so freaking awesome to knit. But, as I've said, the next one will be easier. I'm looking at the Origami Cardi in the latest IK. The yarn will arrive tomorrow, I think, along with some other goodies from Knitpicks. Exciting!
How's your speed knitting coming?
