Maybe then your blues will fade away
Everybody has a favorite sweater. The one you throw on Saturdays for raking leaves, the one that’s perfect for the walk in the woods or the trip to the grocery store. The one that’s perfectly casual, perfectly cosy, and makes you look in the mirror exactly how you feel inside.
This is my favorite sweater.
Thank you, Patons Classic Merino, for being consistent, lightweight, dirt cheap, and easily blockable to open up the cable and rib pattern of this sweater. Thank you, Amy Swenson, for somehow knowing the exactly sweater that I yearned for before I ever even considered knitting a sweater. Thank you, Knitty, for making it free and available. Thank you, Grumperina, for making cabling without a needle second nature and lightning fast. Thank you, Christmas knitting list, for giving me a craving to make something that would take longer than a week and that I could keep for myself.
Words cannot express how much I love this sweater. This sweater — classic, easy, timeless, handmade. I never could have guessed in all its pleasurable hours of knitting that it would be so utterly perfect.
