I welcomed in the spring with the cold that just wont quit - today is my first functional day in well over a week. Blech - I'll spare you the details.
So to celebrate spring - hehe - thought I'd show you a winter project that never got blogged. (I started a handy dandy note book so we should have less of the forgetting to blog stuff now.) This was my Christmas gift from my mother. God I love having a knitter for a mom! My Mom - Bless her little knitter heart - surpassed my every knitting ambition with this one. The woman made me a sweater. In secret! Without any help from me! I'm without words for how amazing this is - oh - and the sweater is pretty amazing too!
Details: The Dickinson Pullover (Ravelry link - only one I could find)
Yarn: Moda Dea 100% superwash Merino
Other deats like needle size & whatnot I haven't a clue. I do know she made the second to largest size and it's a nice comfy fit.I'm just the luckiest kid with the bestest mom!
OH MY GOD, I borrowed your shawl, which got tons of complements NOW I want that sweater!!!! PS I told anyone who asked that a friend made it (the shawl) but secretly I think most people thought that I made it!
That is one gorgeous sweater! I am having pangs of jealousy here. I am looking for a male version to make for my husband. I love cabled sweaters.
Wow, it looks great! What a fabulous fit! Congratulations to your mom an a successful knit and congratulations to you for being her daughter!
You are one lucky kid! What a beautiful sweater! Lovely color and all those cables. Gorgeous! Your mom did a lovely job
Wow, What a lovely sweater. Nice to have such a great relationship with your Mom. Lucky you. Love the color too.Post a Comment
