It’s going to be 80 in southern Minnesota today. The leaves are still firmly attached to the trees and stubbornly green. But in a few weeks all of that is going to change and I’m going to be ready.
Over Labor Day weekend, I finally finished weaving in the ends on my Plum Island Pullover. It’s a simple, gansey style sweater, with a slouchy, comfortable shape. The pattern is by Alison Green.
The decided to knit this sweater during one of those rare moments of yarn-related serendipity. I had a pattern I wanted to knit and exactly the right yarn in my stash, the right yardage and everything. How often does that happen?
I used Imperial Yarns Columbia in the Indigo Heather colorway.
Hope the cold weather doesn’t hit too soon. Lovely sweater!
We are in Milwaukee, and I am praying for those cooler temperatures this week. Just not the drastic ones. Probably mid 60s would be sweet.
Love the sweater!
Awesome! I love when the stash stars align!
Very cozy looking and so pretty!
Aw thanks. I’m banking on the cozy thing so I can keep the heat lower this winter.
That is very, very pretty. I love that the pattern is quite subtle and delicate. Wear and enjoy. 🙂
I shall 🙂 I don’t own anything else like this. A new kind of sweater in my wardrobe.
What a great, standard gansey with some visual interest in front.
That’s what I thought. It was a soothing knit. Just enough pattern to keep me interested.
Almost never!! You lucky duck! 😀
I’m trying not to use this to justify the size of my stash. I’m supposed to be reducing it not finding excuses to build it up.
I know EXACTLY what you mean, lol. I am going to be moving, yet again, and have been trying to use up my stash by making things I sell at LYS 😛
I envy you the weather, its pedictability and that gorgeous Plum Island Pullover 🙂
You’re not sure you’re going to get cold weather where you live?
We can’t even be sure we’ll have a summer in the UK!
It is a rare, beautiful thing when you can get the perfect sweater out of stash. Congrats!
Wonderful sweater. And you were successful in putting pattern to yarn and yarn to pattern.
