I finished my Merrifield Sweater by Pam Allen back in May, and today is the first time I’m actually wearing it out in the world (to my job). I’m loving the fit, which is unusual for me–usually, I never wear my hand knit sweaters because the sleeves are too long, or too short, or the body is too long, or the yoke feels like it doesn’t sit so nice.
This one, this one feels like a dream. I’m glad I knit it in one of the smallest sizes, because ultimately I think my frame is more petite than I feel in my mind.
This was knit up using Quince and Co. kestrel yarn (linen) in urchin and is a perfect sweater for this weird October weather we are having–chilly mornings, mid 70s afternoons.
