I think I may be cursed. I really love knitting the Love Note sweater pattern. It’s on big needles, it works up quickly and it creates a beautiful sweater. But this is now the second time I’ve knit this sweater and realized it wasn’t meant for me to keep!
When I knit the last Love Note, I knit a smaller size and used a lovely combination of yarns that created a yellow fabric speckled with bits of green – but I realized it was meant for my sister. And it looks really cute on her. This time I intentionally said I’m going to make a blue version so I can wear it with my green pleated skirt or my red one.
I went a size up and got a little bit more ease, and I love it. But then my Mom saw it and kept saying how blue is her color and how soft it is…and I think this one is going to go to her. You can’t say no to your mom, right?
For this lovely blue-green sweater I mixed Kelbourne Woolens Perennial in Dark Teal with Manos del Uruguay Cabrito in Ultramarine. It’s got a love deep color with flashes of a deep green in it. It’s soft and light but again, I think this is going to go to my Mom. When I picked up the Perennial yarn I kept picking up their super bright color Neon Pink. I just feel like I need to make myself one in a neon because of course, I always want the brighter the better. And then I thought, well if I give this one to my Mom, and I’ve already given one to my sister Anne, that means I’m going to have to make Helen one too! So I have a feeling I’ll be making at least two more Love Note sweaters before the year is over.
Fortunately for me, I’m a really quick knitter. What’s a pattern you’ve made over and over again that you love?
