Yarn: The Plucky Knitter superwash merino, in the Honey Wilkes colorway
Needles: size 4 and 5 US circulars
Mods and Notes: Oh gosh. I do really like this sweater but there are definitely things I wish I’d done differently. Namely, I would have knit it at a size up from the smallest size. When I button all the buttons, it gaps pretty noticeably. I’ll probably wear it the way I did in the photos, with only the top few buttons done up.
I love the details; the acorn-patterned yoke, of course, and the little acorns running around the hem and sleeve edging.
Let me just say a note about the yarn – oh, the yarn, lovely lovely yarn! The color is amazing – it almost glows. The merino is super soft, and was a pleasure to knit with. One of those projects you almost don’t want to finish because you don’t want to stop playing with the yarn! Luckily for me, I have a couple more skeins left…enough for a hat and fingerless mitts combo, possibly?
It’s been clear for a while that I’m not going to make my 12 sweaters in 2010 goal. Honestly, that doesn’t really bother me at all. I feel like I’ve stayed on track really well with my sweater knitting, and just having that goal in mind has pushed me to complete more sweaters than I otherwise would!
