Wisteria

Wow, a real knitting post.

The Wisteria sweater, by the gifted Kate Gilbert, published in the terrific on-line knitting magazine Twist Collective.

Yarn:  From my small hoard, a beautiful dk-sport weight  Lambspun of Colorado yarn, the store’s own Alpine Exotics line, a merino/alpaca/silk/cashmere blend in the color “blue spruce.”

Gauge: Why take the adventure out of knitting?

Size: Not sure, but it looks about right …

Modifications: Aside from yarn weight, also shortened sleeves, and did more dramatic hip-waist-bust shaping.  I knitted sleeves and non-patterned portions of body on straights …  Did I mention I really hate knitting in the round?

And in the end: a lovely, light-weight, warm sweater, just in time for summer.  Sigh.
