First, I didn’t realize until yesterday that the images for Monday’s post about fingering weight sweaters were all one image. Oops! I’ve updated it if you wanted to see what each sweater was supposed to be based on the captions – no one pointed it out to me! I’ve had some issues with WordPress and images and links lately so definitely let me know if something seems off. But now on to a fun finished object.
I finished the Love Note sweater in just 8 days. Fingering weight yarn and mohair held double on size 10 needles, that’s a pretty quick knit. I knew when I saw it on Tin Can Knits feed I wanted to knit it and now that I’ve knit this one I’m already starting a second one.
A second one already? Why, you ask? Because sometimes when I knit things they tell me who they are supposed to belong to and this sweater has my sister Anne’s name written all over it.
It’s feminine, soft and light and it’s her absolute favorite color, yellow. I mixed Madelinetosh Euro Sock in Sycamore with Kim Dyes Yarn Cotton Candy Lace in Mosaic to get this playful color combination.
I knit the size medium in this version and I have about a 40 bust, my sister is smaller than I am so I think it will have a better amount of ease. For my version, I’ll knit the large. I also went with the full length instead of the cropped length and I like it a lot. This pattern goes from newborn sizing to a size 66.5 inch bust, so they cover a broad range. I really love how light and airy it is and I know my sister is going to love this one too.
Anyone else knitting the Love Note? I’ve already wound up my skeins for the next one.
