Remember this sweater? I've been making some progress on it and have reached the point in the top-down process where I've put the sleeve stitches on holders, joined the front to the back and am knitting toward the hem. Now that the weather has cooled down a bit in Los Angeles (78 degrees F. today), it's more comfortable to knit with a bunch of wool in my lap.
I do love this color combination. It's Fleece Artist yarn in multi-colors of reddish orange, light olive and burnt sienna, striped with Berroco Ultra Alpaca in olive green. I wear a lot of olive green in the winter, but I don't currently have a good pair of olive green slacks. Finding a pair that would match the olive of the yarn might be futile. I'll stick to my 12 pairs of black slacks. I like that all-one, matchy look. SOOOOO, I thought I'd trim this sweater in a Chanel-like way, using a black boucle' yarn, single crochet around the edges several times. I might even add the Chanel-obligatory trimmed pockets in front...somewhat like this sweater.Photo by Crazy Aunt Purl @ WeHo SnB 9-20-07
Fall weather makes me happy.
