But then she saw the Fuzzy Ballet Sweater pattern by Kris Percival on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fuzzy-ballet-sweater).
I spun two plies of blue merino and two plies of very pale blue angora. It is a very easy pattern to follow and knits up really quickly. I made it in the small size. I should have made it a medium or large. Live and learn. The more I knit, the better I get at choosing the correct size.
I would knit this sweater again in a heartbeat.
