First up... I was working along on Gisela Redux at good speed and ran out of balled yarn and it was late and I didn't feel like winding it so I started another sweater. Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it. The project - Ann Budd's Garter Lace Jacket from Simple Style. Since the yarn I selected for this one is put up in balls why not get it on the needles ;-) I'm using Jojoland Fingering weight wool in a tan color. This will be a very light and airy sweater; perfect for Spring and Summer here in the Pacific North West. I got gauge with US7 needles and away I went.
The back is a simple garter stitch pattern so perfect mindless knitting but can't wait to see the lace form on the front pieces.
Jojoland fingering weight - Not just for socks.
Perfect for light weight sweaters and shawls too!
A tan sweater will soon join my small but growing collection of hand knitted sweaters.
Here's a picture from the book Simple Style.
