Here I frolic in a sweater knit from yarn I bought years ago at The Frolic.  It's not my knitting of this Drops pattern that disappoints. It fits beautifully thanks to a few personal modifications and I love the sculptural effect of the edge work.
It's the yarn that is the problem. It is long discontinued and it has become quickly obvious why. This Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora does not wear well. I've worn this sweater twice and it looks old already. The yarn sheds and pills and the jacket is stretching out. What a shame after all that work.
