Although it has been very quiet at the blog a lot of knitting has been going on. Would you believe that I have completed three sweaters over the winter months...well I have. It started out as a new year's resolution back in January to work on only one thing at a time and to finish each one. Turns out that I like that process as I like being in the zone.
So this is the latest jumper just off the needles. Spring Lines. it has pockets and stripes.
I was invited to do a testknit for Rililie last month. Mine is in spring colours all merino wools garnered from the stash. Working from stash was my other resolution. This pullover is hip to wear and the stripes knit in the blink of an eye. This pullover is lightly fitted as an a-line pullover and is worked top down in one piece. Did I mention the pockets? The pattern is well written and clear, and it has tons of how-to links for the special techniques like short rows and colour changes.

Rililie's sweater came out in the deep freeze of Feburary when my world outside was white and windy and daylight was scarce. It was a burst of colour ready to brighten up any mood, indeed the original is saturated with bright vibrant reds and oranges and pinks.
If you're in need of a great audio book, for company when knitting, have a listen to the Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. I especially love this story of a long and deep journey of a gentle soul. Written by Rachel Joyce.
