So I was determined to finish this sweater before the end of winter, but ended up binding off yesterday, which was technically the second day of Spring - Boo!! Lucky for my sweater, it snowed and we woke up to freezing temperatures, so it was worn with pride and smiles all day long anyway.
Pattern is Carrie Bostick Hoge's Camilla Pullover. It's an ingenious seamless knit, knit in the round from the bottom up. The main body is knit in one piece from the bottom up, then then the sleeves are knit in the round on double pointed kneedles separately and joined them to the main body, still in the round, shaping a raglan style yoke all the way to the neck. I knit a size small, and love the fitted body achieved with simple garter stitch on size US 10 needles.
Yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in the Optic colorway, and it's heavenly. This is the first time I've ever forked over so much money for yarn in my life, but it was worth it. I can't explain how squishy and soft this wool is, and how striking and unique the colorways are. Suffice it to say that I now understand why Madelinetosh has such a cult following.
For a few more knitting details, check out my Ravelry page. I'm actually a little sad that this sweater is off the needles, but that hasn't stopped me from picking my next knitting project. It's another Carrie Bostick Hoge pattern for my boy - the Lulu, in blues. New goal: to have a blue Lulu done by fall. I think I can handle that!
