f.o.: birch pullover.

I had a few starts and stops with the color work on my Birch pullover because I didn’t check for errata online since I had a print version of the pattern in a book. It definitely gives me pause about buying any kind of knitting book in the future. And digital patterns are easier anyway–can have right on my phone or ipad, mobile and can be downloaded no matter where I am and don’t take up clutter in my house.

That being said, I am in love with the fit of this sweater. It is ridiculously comfortable, the sleeves are exactly the length I like them, and there is the exact amount of ease I was hoping for (not tight, but some fitting around the bust to give me a tiny bit of shape). I knit this with Quince and Co. Owl Tweet in sooty for the main and Quince and Co. Owl in snowy for the contrast color.

I can’t wait to wear it and the finished product is so damn wearable that I’d consider another one, in a different color way, for my mom. She’d love it.

As always, project notes at ravelry.
