Moon Pulls

I had a hectic week and apparently it depleted my resistance to attacks against will (but LBR it's not like my Char or Wis scores are that high to start with ...) because yesterday I tripped and bought the PDF pattern to Moon Pulls, a gorgeous lopapeysa-inspired sweater, along with an online order of Lett-Lopi yarn for knitting it (I didn't buy the cashmere yarn ... yet.)

This will be interesting because I am petite (5'3") as well as--not to put too fine a point on it--not a cylinder. So customization is mandatory in all sweater patterns. I had previously sworn up and down I was only going to do top down raglans in the future because it's SO EASY to adjust the most troublesome measurement areas for me. Also because seaming is the worst. So really, what I did last night shows that I had completely taken leave of my senses. XD However, the pattern very thoughtfully provides line drawings with all the measurements for all the sizes, so hopefully I should be able to mix and match? Thank you, Dianna Walla, for being so considerate of non-fit-model figures.

Moon Pulls has a lovely funnelneck! I'm glad there's a schematic; those have helped me so much, even if I've messed up anyway. :) Have fun with it!
