Finished Sweater

I finished knitting a sweater this week -

I wanted to knit a sweater with commercial yarn for a change. It is knit with a fingering weight yarn and a lace weight silk and mohair yarn, held together (Bare Capretta and grey Aloft Super Kid Mohair both from Knit Picks). The pattern started out as The Classic by Espace Tricot. I decreased stitches before knitting the ribbing for the sleeves and made the sweater longer (I wanted to use up my yarn).
The sweater came out really nice - it is soft and warm.
Now I am working on a hat (Musselburg by Ysolda Teague), out of some beautiful merino/possum/silk yarn from a dear friend in New Zealand. I dyed the yarn. The hat is constructed so that it is two layers plus the brim folds over (4 layers over the ears!) - it should be a nice warm hat.

Interesting patterns in the snow drifts.
Molly loves to dig in the snow.
Miss Maggie is happy to watch from her favourite spot.
My youngest son started growing vegetables inside - mostly hydroponic lettuce, but he experimented with a bean plant, and this was the big harvest (they were delicious).

All the best!♥︎
