It’s a little gloomy in NYC today and work seems to be dragging just little now that it’s eastern standard time. This makes for good knitting weather indeed. I came across a website called Sweater Babe and found a sweater that held my interest to take the challenge to knit it. It’s called the cowl sweater and can be knitted with long or short sleeves.
It’s a top down knit construction and I purchased the pattern for $7.00. The suggested yarn to knit this is project is Knit Picks’ swish bulky yarn. I chose to knit using the yarn, and picked the color blackberry since the shade purple is the trend for the fall season. I decided to knit the short-sleeved version because this sweater will be very warm and trying to fit the long-sleeve under a coat will be a challenge. I am going to do a swatch and hope that the yarn will be delivered by Friday to get a weekend start.
I have to get started with a menu for Thanksgiving, and thinking about purchasing some wool tweed fabric to sew and coordinate with the cowl sweater. In any event, I have to wait and see because I could change my mind and want to make a pair of double-knit grey trousers. It’s Ciao for now.
