Doctor, I think I have a problem, I thought I was cured from knitting shawls, but actually, I think I’ve step into another addiction instead : knitting sweater ! 🙂
Oh, really ? What are your symptoms?
Yes, indeed, that seems like quite a lot is happening, I fear an epidemy in your wardrobe pretty soon. Show me that so that I can check !
Ok, I stop being silly and let me show you my Fern & Feather sweater, I adore it, and I’m even prouder since I’ve knitted it in a bit more than 2 weeks, when it usually takes me about 3 to 4 weeks to knit a sweater ! 🙂
For this sweater, I used my dyeing test yarn (from my serie used for my Peacock shawl) in 50% merinos and 50% alpaca, and for the pattern around the neck, I took “Iceberg”, 75%merinos and 25% nylon , hand dyed by me, like all the other yarn in my collection (available online)
Just like for Arboreal, this sweater was quite easy to knit : we start from the top, and the neck pattern, easy and fun to knit….
"Fern & Feather" by @knit.love.wool 😍 (it s more teal than black actually) ☺ —- Hop c est le weeeeeeeekkkk ennnndddd !!!! Et j ai attaquele fern and feather…. il va etre splendide j ai super hate ! S il te plait le printemps arrive, mais pas trop vite quand meme.. l hiver c est bien pour porter des jolis pulls (et en vrai il n est pas noir mais plutot bleu canard) 😀 Ou vert canard, je sais jamais ☺ #indiedyer #knitlovewool #fernandfeather #knits #tricot #jetricotedoncjesuis
And then it’s like a Highway to knit, I even took it with me on a hike, in case I felt to knit a few rows while on a pause (but I didn’t, I just took the photo) 🙂
It turns out great, and fits me better than my Arboreal, since this time I exactly knew which size to pick when starting to knit it ! 🙂
I love it love it loooooooove it !!!
I havn’t wore it yet, but since Spring seems to really take its time to be around here, I know that my Fern and feather sweater will not retired in my closet yet ! 🙂
Doctor, should I be worried if as soon as I’ve finished knitting my Fern and Feather sweater, I already have another sweater on my needles ?
