knitting and knitting…

and knitting some more. I think DK is the perfect weight for a sweater when you’re wearing it but my level of patience is better suited to aran weight yarns.

Maybe I’ll have more to show you next week…


a very wearable sweater: shadow

A couple of weeks ago, I showed you my new favorite sweater, Shadow. I’ve already worn it a lot. The a-line shape is a lot more flattering and comfortable than I thought it might be. The three quarter length sleeves and reverse stockinette stitch up the sides keeps it from being too bulky.

The outfits I’ve been putting together with it are pretty preppy, and make me think of this, and this.

Two good friends recently had babies, just a week or so apart. I’d been anticipating this and had a little blue sweater and a little purple sweater waiting to be dispatched. And my friends kindly obliged – one had a little boy and one had a little girl.
