Believe it or not I have actually been knitting this year. This was the second sweater I have finished and another one only needs the neck edging to be knit on. That makes 3 sweaters in one year which is pretty darn good for this very slow knitting Woolen Rabbit. The 4th and 5th sweaters have already been swatched for and I am anxious to get started on them once I finish the socks that I promised to Courtney.
Cecily's pattern was a pure delight to knit. The instructions were very good and as you know I am a huge fan of simple stockinette stitching. It's always so soothing and moves along quickly. Knit in Sporty Kashmir, I was very pleased with how this fabric turned out. Incredibly soft but not so soft that the garment lost it's structure. The best part of this pattern for me was the knit in short row sleeve caps and then knitting the sleeve down. As a rule of thumb, I do not enjoy w&t short rows and but using them to knit in a sleeve cap instead of sewing it in....LOVE it! So much neater than my less than perfect seaming.
I know that this is a sweater that I will wear alot and isnt this the very best reward for knitting! Right?
