I seem to be into the fall colours at the moment. Maybe I am just trying to match my completely dried out front lawn. Maybe I am dreaming of cooler weather. Really though, when it comes to this sweater, I was trying to branch out of my normal comfort zone of purple, pinks, greys.
This is a great little pattern that works up so quickly in the bulky yarn. While I have a bunch of Eco Wool in my stash, I had never used it before. Definitely loving on the Eco. It is soft without being too soft, and not fluffy or splitty at all. I can see why it is the most popular yarn at the shop.
I generally do not knit a lot of large gauge projects, because I think sometimes they can make my feel a little “teddy bear-esque”. But the difference with this pattern is the lace repeats. It makes it look pretty and feminine, and keeps it cooler. I love the little teeny cap sleeves too.
The bow is just a fun accent, but it could be easily worn with a shawl pin too. I think I will get lots of use out of this in the early fall. Right now it is displayed at the shop if anyone would like to have a look.
