Poor little guy.
Well, on so many fronts, he really IS a poor, little guy. If you saw the picture at the bottom of my last post, this speaks to Tiberius's frame of mind at many points during a day.

This sweater took something like FIVE HUNDRED years to knit.
Which is basically like six weeks or something. Sport weight yarn??? Check. Small circulars, double check. F'real.
I hope the Dunes sweater, designed by Justyna Lorkowska (FB page HERE) of Lete's Knits (Ravelry group page HERE), fits the bill. It is gorgeously green and soft. I used Skein yarn (FB page HERE), dyed by Kristin ((Also, if you haven't seen Kristen's podcast, Skein Studio, go and watch! She also has an active Ravelry group.)). I used Skein Sport in the Highlands colorway, and it really is so cozy-looking on him!
It barely took maybe one and a half skeins - honestly probably close to one and a quarter or so.....which means another situation in which I have all this extra yarn and no idea what to do with it. I'm horrible about trying to use scraps, but in this case, I might try to squeeze in a pair of sport-weight socks for Tiberius in the Spring. I absolutely LOVE it, even though it was the death of me on those 16-inch circulars. I kind of despise working on short circulars, as many people know. After the cabling, I finally tried whipping out some of the bottom ribbing on two longer circulars, which was okay - not sure if it sped me up or not, though, LOL.
