Chuck Sweater



I've been knitting again! I started this sweater during new years and finally finished it this past week. It's a top down seamless pullover from Untangling Knots. The directions are clear and well thought out, lots of short row shaping to fit the body. I made the size L, and it fits pretty well. It was nice to work in a worsted weight yarn, usually I pick out a pattern for something with size two needles and it takes an eternity to get anywhere. 




I'm wearing the sweater over one of my favorite makes, my quilt dress. The green is a gorgeous spring color, I have to make some more things to go with it! The yarn is Holiday Yarns Wooly Ewe Worsted, from a local yarn store Knit A Bit. I love Andi's patterns, I've already made the Miette, and I just casted on the Marion, also in a worsted yarn. It's a pink yarn to match my new glasses, Kate Spade Lyssa in a pink sparkle! I'm in love.

  1. It's so pretty! I still continue to practice my knitting. I'm getting faster, but sewing keeps me from it as I'm engrossed in it. Your dress is cute.
