A sample knit for Quince & Co in chickadee heathers. Just when I thought I had a favorite yarn they gone and did this.
From the first moment I saw this sweater I knew it had to be mine.It's a wonder what they put in those photos over at Quince & Co. because they truly have me with every single one!
Not much I can say about this other than I Love It. Carrie truly has a great eye for design. I made no modifications to the pattern – not even when it came to picking up for the pockets. I like em' as I see 'em! Plus, as you would expect, the pattern was well written. Clear directions and a great sweater schematic!
As for the yarn, it's soft, squshy and blossmed just a bit after blocking. My rule of thumb with any sweater I make is that I like to be a wee bit tighter on my gauge – maybe about a 1/4 stitch. The stitches will grow.
All in all – LOVE.
I wonder what sweater will captivate me next!
What's tickling your fancy these days?
This was the first month that I have made knitting my "day job". It's been really fun to be able to concentrate on knit blogging and I hope you've all enjoyed following along!
Looking forward to one knitty filled May! (Project Spectrum begins! Woop!)
The yarn for my Belfast Hoodie has arrived with a quick thank you note from Carrie Bostick Hoge herself.
I am just a little bit excited about that last fact. Just a wee bit.
