I honestly thought that I'd have enough of the green and taupe colors - after all, I used a third contrast color for the ribbed edges, right? Such is my flawed logic, and I can't say I swatched for this sweater, either - it's got so much positive ease, it really didn't seem necessary at the time (logic flaw #2). I'm lucky this fits quite well, given that I skipped one of the most important parts of the sweater-knitting process. Running out of yarn was just another reminder of why gauging is important, I guess!
Even though my sweater doesn't look exactly like the one in the magazine, I totally love how it turned out and will wear it a lot this fall!

My other semi-stash-busting project is the Locale scarf, which I started on my trip to KC last month and finished last weekend, but had to wait for it to dry after blocking. Madtosh is always a delight to work with, and this scarf is soft and warm and lovely, though I do wish I'd subbed in a different edging so that everything lays flat.
