f.o.: western rose pullover.

Can I just wax poetic on how genius designer extraordinaire Thea Colman is. This Western Rose pullover was a dream to knit, start to finish. I’d definitely like to knit it again, and also use it’s general shape for other sweaters, as the fit is bomb (minus the way too long sleeves for my short arms that I had to do surgery on and rip back after this sweater was finished).

This was my first time using Spincycle Dream State and it was worth every penny spent. The main color way for this sweater is my ever favorite Harrisville Designs Nightshades in the cinder color, which has glorious flecks of orange on a backdrop of black. It’s subtle and it makes the black take on a purply hue. I love it. The contrast is the Spincycle Dreamstate in Stay Ready and I love the whites, grays, and browns throughout. So beautiful.

Of course, my ravelry notes here.
