my version of "smokin" aka birthday sweater
this sweater came out exactly how i wanted it to be. warm, cozy and comfy. the yarn - rowan yorkshire tweed chunky was sitting in my stash for the longest time. now come to think of it, it was definitely worth the wait while finding the right pattern for it. i've always wanted a simple clean line shawl collar jacket that you can just throw on during cold days. this pattern is actually a men's pattern designed by jared flood awhile ago. i knitted the smallest size in needle US9 and made little tweaks on the collar and length of the sleeves. i also changed the traditional button closure to toggles which i adore even though there were a little more than what i wanted to spend. anyways, i love it. i have been wearing a lot ever since i finished.
so what's next? i just ordered some yarn for p's annual sweater, there will be lots of cables in pretty cashmere yarn..hmmm i will fill you in when they arrive. have a great weekend!
