A guest from Canada is wearing a new sweater I designed and knit for myself. The wool is local and is from Patzcuaro - a small town near Morelia. It costs about $10 a kilo. It knits up a lot like the wool from Iceland and I used 5mm needles. It was knit from the top down and steeked up the front. I used crochet to secure the steek but wonder if it was really necessary. It does neaten up the edges. I have to take off my glasses to read now so I designed the sweater with a breast pocket. Quite handy. I used Shetland wool for the hems and pockets.
