those knitters who’ve seen me during my travels this month will attest that i’ve been virtually living in this sweater. the lighter seasonal fabric has a cotton-y stretchy hand for the ultimate in next-to-the-skin comfort with a neat, tailored appearance. the pretty lace-and-cable stitch pattern manages to be feminine and sporty all at once, showing just a peek of whatever you want to wear (or not!) underneath. a real cross-climate winner, this one.
jocelyn wanted a bit more ease in her version and modified the lengths throughout the pattern to fit her petite frame. it looks great in the fall colorway she chose, a gray/brown/gold blend, shot with slate blue. i think she like it pretty well . . .
and justly so—look at the amazing fit she achieved here. stunning, right??
i’m so lucky to be able to work with a wonderful test knitter like jocelyn; she knit the whole thing in eighteen days for the olympics.
mine took slightly longer, but i love it just as much . . .
many kudos to catherine at knitting notions for her generous yarn support—she’s got a real winner is this lovely all-season merino sport yarn. it’s comfy, soft, and very practical for active spring and fall travel and activities. catherine has a wide selection of other wonderful yarns and knitting accessories in her online shop, all of them as lovely as this one—go check it out. or look for her throughout the summer at one of the wool shows on her busy calendar; she’s probably planning to visit one near you soon.
dear david, i don’t know how you always manage to make me look so much better than i actually do, but i really, really appreciate it—thank you!
