Well, whaddya known? Here I am posting about another sweater! It's been spring for a WEEK and it's still chilly enough to wear this thing.
After finishing the Dusk sweater, which involved small yarn, small needles, and more than a year of my life, I was ready for something quick. This pattern, called Modern Garden, calls for bulky yarn and size 15 needles. They're huge! (twss)
Instant gratification, if you will. Except that this is knitting, and instant gratification still took me about a week.
I made the small size, but could have made the extra small and been fine. The shaping for this sweater is all created by the leaf pattern.
I found acrylic buttons at Botani that have little bits of twigs in them, which I thought matched the theme of the sweater, being named for a garden and all.
Leti liked it so much that she gave me sweet puppy kisses!
Let's take a walk!
