Purple


Happy Friday everyone! I've been working on this sweater for a few weeks now, but I've been really bad about remembering to share it. I bought this yarn about a year ago and it's been sitting in my stash since then while I tried to figure out what to do with it. It's not one of my usual colors, but it really called to me, and it's so dark that I  really wanted to make sure whatever I did with it didn't get lost. A couple weeks before NCFF, I got the idea for a grandpa-style cardigan, in cozy moss stitch with deep ribbing and pockets, and I ran with it.

I worked on this quite a bit during NCFF, and managed to get the fronts and back joined before it was time to come home. Since then, I've been working my way through the body in the evenings, and I'm now about halfway from the underarms to the bottom.

It turns out that I really love having a big simple knit on the needles for evenings in front of the TV. I've never shied away from working on cables or lace with an old British procedural playing, but there's something very relaxing about having a big pile of garter or moss stitch in front of me. Perhaps there's something about the approach of winter that's making me crave cozy, simple knits!
