A Knit A Week

What better way to start off the New Year than
with a lovely wool cardy??
This sweater is actually a test knit that I 
did for Terri Kruse, whose patterns I adore.

The buttons are made from a deer antler by
this etsy seller.  ((I think they bear a marked
resemblance to banana chips.))

So warm and pretty.  I love the offset opening and the cables.

And more pretty cables down the back.
Pattern:  Foster by Terri Kruse (it hasn't been published yet)

Yarn:  Cascade 220 Heathers in the river rock color way.

Verdict:  Wonderful, seamless, knit from the top down sweater.
Lots of stockinette, but having the cables to think about, 
made it bearable.
I think I will get a lot of use out of this one.  
I really like how it fits.

Seriously, Sarah, I don't understand how you are not a professional, high paid, knitting mama! Oh ya, it might be the other career in your life :)
But some day, you will (if you choose it) be highly paid for this, you do beautiful work! Amazing!
