f.o.: carrowkeel sweater.

I love this sweater. This is one of the first non-baby sweaters that I have made which has a ton of seaming; I was really nervous about my patience with creating clean, invisible seams, as well as my ability to make sure it fit well at the shoulders without puckering.

And I have to say… success. I feel really excited about the fit of this sweater and the seaming around those key areas. What’s more, I’ve worn it a number of times, which if we know anything about my knitting, is a feat since I tend to knit things and then let then languish in my closet.

Carrowkeel by Kate Gagnon Osborn is knit up in The Fibre Co. Arranmore, which is an incredibly lovely, dense, tweedy yarn I had never worked with before featuring merino, silk, and even a touch of cashmere. I used the same color way as the pattern sample–Glenveagh Castle, which is a rich gray-brown with flecks of tan, white, and black in the tweed.

I even love how it looked before I added the turtleneck portion, which is the last step. It hugs your body in all the right places.
