Another sweater for me is off the needles... it's actually been done for a while, but I was a bit of a procrastinator when it came to the zipper and photos!
I reviewed Carol Feller's latest e-book Among Stones and SWORE that I would make myself a Liathite.... and then while at Fingerlakes Fiber Festival in September I finally got to see Ross Fiber Farms yarn in person and the perfect match was made!
her farm's story with us, and it really resonated with me, so of course the first time I met her (and saw her yarn) some had to come home!
Jacob/Leicester Longwool in Worsted weight, which is perfect with a long sleeve shirt underneath it.
Caro's method of using blocking wires and pin... and it was freaking painless! Why was I so scared to install a zipper? Silly me!
As for knitting this top down, seamless hoodie, it was such a fast, fun knit and it fit into all of my other deadline knitting so well, I almost don't even remember knitting it.... I would just pick it up, work a cable repeat, and then come back to it again when I needed a break.
Congrats to geo9, LaurainATL and Rooski... get in touch to claim your prize!
