I suppose that when every other thing I’ve knitted this year has been on fingering or laceweight yarn, anything I make on size 7 needles and Aran weight yarn is going to go fast. So all at once, here it is!


This is the Lite Lopi Pullover, from The Best of Interweave Knits. Except that I subbed out the yarn, to Araucania Nature Wool, and changed the colors. And the neckline. And the cuffs. And the colorwork patterns. And the hems. And the shaping. Ok, so the pattern DSCN1171was really a point of departure. Sometimes, the pattern serves more as inspiration than a stitch-by-stitch guide to crafting a garment. Patterns are nice that way.

I’m planning a bit more tinkering, still. I’m not totally happy with the neckline and I want to add facings to the hems. However, you see my smiling face? That’s because the sweater is wearable, and I’ll be wearing it this weekend, because…

It’s been a good three years. See you next week!
