My sweater dress

Though that bulky yarn makes it less suitable for everyday wearing (it's warm!), it does make for a quick knit. I finished my sweater dress last Thursday.

I love it. Some of you already commented about the colors. Yes, neutral, but not boring. That's why I love it so much (I made cowls with it before and knew I wanted a sweater in that colorway).

The cowl neck turned out a bit tighter than I was going for, but when I tried it on, I liked it, so I kept it that way.

The length is just right, a few inches above my knee. I know that in the picture it seems somewhat tight on me, but it does look good in person (so hard to take pictures of oneself). Also I lost a lot of weight lately and I hope to loose a bit more, so I like that it will still fit then.

Overall, I'm quite please with it.

Knit with Marl Wool from Zeeman (but I think they don't sell it anymore, can't find it online), no pattern but some help from Elizabeth Zimmerman on the yoke and the back neck short rows.
