Knitting with Nupps

It will be a long time before I knit another top with nupps. It was slow going and not only that, it wreaked havoc with the arthritis in my right shoulder. I do like the effect but this photo doesn't do justice to the top. My camera's batteries croaked and I need to do some retakes.

It was knitted with a little more than 400g of Cascade Sierra, 100g skeins, color 50, lot 8028. Unfortunately it is discontinued but although it had only about 20% wool in it, it gave the Pima cotton enough springiness in the yarn. I made it with elbow length sleeves.

Although it is mid October here where I live (and I just WISH it would cool down) the yarn was infinitely comfortable and breathable, despite the unseasonable warmth at the moment.
