...for my little Lolo ;0)
The sweater is super cute in a modern vintage kind of way: the woven stitch and construction makes it feel vintage, but the assymetric ribbed placket and collar is cool modern. Love it!
Though I have to admit that the actual knitting on this one was less than pleasant. I knit it from RYC Cashcotton which is deliciously soft and shows great crisp stitch definition but it's utter lack of give makes it really hard on the hands and wrists.
So much so that knitting this sweater gave me my very first taste of carpel tunnel pain - loss of grip and strength in my right hand, sharp shooting pains to the elbow, cold hands and numbness in my thumb, ring finger and pinky. Scary!
Thankfully, now that it's done, the pain is gone. It's one of the many things I was thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend. Of course I was also thankful for my family, grandma's turkey, a delightful walk in the woods (above), my sister's ham and fiber...naturally!
Happy Thansgiving to you and yours! Oh, and if you're Canadian, don't forget to vote on Tuesday, eh?
