Despite school starting this week and things being hectic, I actually finished a project! Woohoo! And after getting my reading assignments out of just one class I’m so unsure how much knitting I’ll get accomplished for the rest of the year. So let’s revel in what I was able to finish. My two “Feather” Featherweight sweaters by Hannah Fettig, a pullover for Beanie and the cardigan for myself.
The body yarn is a mix of Madelinetosh DK in Gin and Tonic mixed with the Hedgehog Fibers Feather yarn in Skinny Dip (I’m linking to one of the few shops online that has a wide selection of the Feather Yarn if you’re interested. This only took one skein of it to do both sweaters). As I was knitting the body I decided I didn’t want the Gin and Tonic blue color to be the collar and ribbing, so I found two skeins of Hedgehog Fibers DK in Skinny Dip and I’m happy I made that change. I really wanted green to be the bright vibe it gave off.
This is such a fun fabric and makes a great accent piece. I describe the fit almost like a shrug. The rolled edges on the collar make it so that it doesn’t close across the bust and I made the sleeves slightly shorter because my classroom gets hot and I want to be okay wearing this to school to teach. I mean how can I not wear this all the time?
For Jellybean’s sweater I gave her a rolled collar that mimics the rolled collar on my own. And then I made a middle panel so that she could just slip her legs through.
When my husband saw us, he just laughed and said, “Jellybean, I didn’t do this to you.” But clearly I ignore him and clearly he thinks I’m hilarious. Have a great day!
