|Lifesavers Cardigan pattern, Tanis Blue Label yarn|
I never thought I'd knit a sweater with fingering weight yarn, even though I bought it in Canada for that purpose. Once I finished it, I found I like it. It is just warm enough and very comfortable.
|Portage cardigan pattern, Zara yarn|
This superwash yarn makes a heavier sweater. It doesn't have buttons, so is wearable despite the weight.
|Yoke sweater of my own design using cvm yarn from local mill|
This wool is very itchy, making it a challenge to design a sweater that I can wear comfortably. I think it is a success but will know for sure after next winter.
|Gehry pattern, Brooklyn Tweed Loft yarn|
This sweater wasn't quite done when I took this photo, but it is completed now. I have worn it, but wish I'd knit a smaller size. The yarn is nice and light, but too itchy for me.
|Truss pattern, Cascade Cloud yarn|
This pattern is not as flattering as I thought it might be and the yarn is heavy. Still, it is a comfortable weight and goes with all my black and gray, as well as blue jeans.
