I’ve been finishing up a lot of lingering projects lately, but this is my favorite. My husband and I celebrated 5 years of marriage in June, so I cast on a sweater the same color as my dress.
And I think you’ll agree the sweater is a fitting homage.
I had a lot of fun knitting it. This sweater went beer tasting on our vacation.
And to see a concert performed by a few hundred french horn players.
And for more beer. I guess you could say this sweater is brought to you by beer. But my husband is a home brewer and we went to Belgium on our honeymoon so bar knitting is fitting.
The design is mine on a base pattern from Custom Fit. I wrote about Custom Fit recently and the program makes is so easy to take an idea in your head to reality! In this case I wanted a lace panel up the front and along the side seams and onto the shoulder.
I’ve never seen a set in sleeve pattern with lace along the outside edge of the shoulder.
But I fell in love with the design feature and plan to try it again in the future! It look a little more thinking ahead, but not that much.
This sweater also gave me a chance to break into one of my Japanese stitch dictionaries! I’m not sure what the title is, but here is a photo of the cover. Japanese stitch dictionaries are great because they have photos and charts for all the stitch patterns!
Happy Anniversary babe!
