Valpuri is done! I am so on a role for finishing project this week! Somehow, I don't think I'll be finishing anything else this week but I did finish the two I need to be able to start a new project. And since I ordered some yarn for a new project last Friday, that's a good thing!

Pattern: Valpuri by Berraco Design Team
Yarn: Berroco Vintage in Sloeberry (3.5 Skeins)
Needles: US 6 & US 8
Mods: I worked this in the round instead of in pieces to be seamed up. I didn't eliminate any stitches for side seams. I just took the number that the pattern said and went with that. After I finished knitting this in the round, I read an article that said you should eliminate 2 stitches from each side because the designers add those in to account for the stitches that are lost due to seaming. But it fits great as is.
Also, Girl Friday is currently blocking. I cannot wait to finish this sweater. The stitch definition with The Wool of the Andes from Knit Picks is really nice. Can't wait!
