wearing willard.

I wore Willard last week and got loads of compliments. The fit is perfect. I like my sweaters to usually have about +2 inches of ease, and this hits the target mark. I seem to only get the best fit when I’m knitting a top down raglan sweater. Bottom up ones are often too longContinue reading “wearing willard.”

finished willard.

I finally finished my Willard pullover by Hannah Fettig. It shouldn’t have taken since the end of November because it was a simple top down with a bit of color work at the yoke. Alas, holiday knitting got in the way. This sweater is beautiful finished. It is everything I hoped it would be when IContinue reading “finished willard.”

The sweater had been on the back burner as the holidays approached, but it’s now front and center again. I should be finished this week, with only the sleeves left (man! I hate knitting the sleeves;Continue reading “progress.”

chevrons yoke.

Two ferociously cold nights here in Boston meant early to bed with blankets and books and knitting projects, of course. After those two nights, I have a fair isle yoke, already divided for the sleeves and body, completed. And I’m loving it. I’ve knitted the Chevrons sweater before for my mum as a Christmas giftContinue reading “chevrons yoke.”
