I finished it! I finished my Tecumseh sweater and of course it’s freezing cold on the East Coast and I can’t wear it without having to layer it. While I was making it I decided since I was using a cotton blend yarn that I would make this a short sleeved sweater. We typically have more hot than cold weather in Maryland and DC and of course as soon as I made this short sleeved the temps dropped. Oh well. I’m wearing it anyway.
I have a feeling this will get worn a lot this summer. Partially because I’m so proud that I did it. Pretty floats and all on the backside. And practically because it’s hot and this is light, loose and flowy. Perfect for those humid days. The only modification I made to this pattern was the shortening of the sleeves, otherwise I didn’t stray from the pattern at all. The color possibilities are endless for this sweater and I want to do a wool version with navy blue as the main color and pops of teal and pink. Also I love this version with speckled white and shades of green.
I also really love this top because the green goes so well with my Sandagren clogs. I’ve loved clogs since I was little and always have 2 to 3 pairs and when I saw this fun closed back clog with a cutout I wanted it but didn’t pull the trigger. Then I went on Amazon to order dog food and the same clogs popped up as a suggestion for me but they offered them in a shade of green! I knew I had to have them. They also have them in a darker base with darker nubuck shades for fall.
Usually I can wait on a purchase but that perfect Kelly green made me say I needed to snap these up since they’re in limited inventory. They’re super comfy and add a little fun to my wardrobe. I wear a pop of green like people wear a pop of red. It’s my favorite color. I also realized these are my first real pics I’ve taken with my new haircut. It has already grown so much in just two short weeks. I’m getting used to it and it helps that I’ve had so many great compliments from everyone.
And as always, no photo session is complete without one or both dogs joining me. As soon as I sat down Jellybean hopped right in my lap.
I know I’m going to make this sweater again, so maybe a fall knit along?
