yarn along

16 02 2011

I am working on a sweater for Mr. P.

Actually, I have been ‘working on it’ for months – in including a road trip last fall to have him select the yarn & color. Originally it was the Joukahainen pattern, but I started over again in February with the Vanille pattern because it seems like a looser fit – which is key since I can’t have Mr. P try it on as I go.

The yarn is completely delicious – Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Wool – all supersoft merino wool in a nice, heathery purple. I’ll probably use it again when I tackle the Joukahainen pattern next fall.

Thank you! This is far and away the largest project I’ve ever worked on. The endless stockinette stitchery is a little monotonous/intimidating – but at least I can watch videos.

That looks like a really lovely yarn you’re working with. And I looked at the pattern page for the sweater and it’s a great classic shape. Someone’s very lucky to be getting that sweater!

Thank you! It’s very basic, but this is my first big sweater – and my husband wanted something completely simple, no fuss or details.
