Me: “Alexis, let’s take some pictures of the new winter sweater I just finished for you.”
Alexis: (long, drawn out siiiiiiiigh that makes me dread the teenage years ahead) “Can I read while you do it?”
So, without disturbing her reading, here it is.
My favorite part is the gathers on the bodice and sleeves of the Olearia sweater. The pattern comes with lots of variations — I’m thinking matching shrugs to go over the girls’ Easter dresses later this spring. I used Madelinetosh tosh merino yarn I picked up last summer at Jimmy Beans Wool — soft and fun to knit with and warrrrrrm (we didn’t get above freezing here last week and bottomed out around 15 below zero. Oy.)
Sitting under the tree with a good book and a fuzzy sweater? Not a bad way to pass an afternoon.
