Wow! Has it really been three months since my last post?

Most of August and September disappeared in a haze of dyeing and sweater-making in preparation for my holiday in the USA. I have quite a few sweater projects still on the wheel and a couple on the needles, but I managed to get a couple completed in time for my visit.

Peat Sweater

Pattern: Seamless Set-In Sleeve Sweater from “Knitting from the Top”
Yarn: Handspun Aran weight Superwash Merino in “Peat” from Hello Yarn 
Needles: 5.0 mm/US 8 and 6.0 mm/US10

Huron Sweater

Pattern: Huron by Jared Flood
Yarn: Portland Tweed from Classic Elite Yarns in “Espresso” and “Desert Sand”

The unfinished sweater projects will now likely hibernate until the end of summer.

In the meantime, it’s all about mittens! Stay tuned.
