It turned out quite well. I really like the lace pattern on the top. The pattern is Peasy by Heidi Kirrmaier and I used nearly ten balls of Debbie Bliss Prima 80% bamboo/ 20%merino. I have to say that while it has great stitch definition, I probably won't use this yarn again; it had an awful lot of knots in it, including one 50g ball that had three! It was very frustrating to try and hide them all. This was my first top-down raglan sweater so I'm pleased to have conquered another knitting techinque. I definitely want to do more.
I can't wait to get home and see family, friends and the city again. This will be my first trip back to Toronto since I moved to the U.K. and I'm expecting it to be a little surreal. I've also become a bit of a weather wimp and am not looking forward to the minus weather and windchill. I AM looking forward to going on a yarn crawl though - Toronto has some terrific indie yarn stores and I'll be visiting them all! Now, can I just get my knitting needles through security. . .
