February Lady Sweater
Gull Lace Pattern on February Lady Sweater
Yes, I'm obsessed. Over 600 people are knitting this pattern on Ravelry. It's a hit. How did I know that once people got ahold of a good top-down sweater pattern, they'd go bonkers? Because top-down sweaters are easy to knit and always fit.
I'm at the lace portion of my black/brown tweed cardigan. I usually CROCHET lace, not KNIT, so this is new-ish for me. It's an easy gull-lace pattern, only 4 pattern rows that repeat. Really, I only have to remember 2 rows, because the wrong side is always a purl row. I can remember the most complicated crochet patterns, but an easy 2 row knit pattern has me constantly looking at my crib sheet that I pinned to the cardi. Eventually, I'm sure I'll have the pattern memorized (I hope).
Over the weekend, I saw Lauren's FLS that she's working on for her future MIL. She's using one of my favorite colorways...very pinky and taupe and very varigated. I knit a "Melville" scarf in this colorway (below). There's something about straight garter stitch in varigated yarn that just sends me. I love the look!
This is the yarn that Lauren is using for her FLS
I'm so crazy. I happened to have a ton of this "Lipstick" color yarn in my stash, so I started yet ANOTHER FLS using this yarn. It's a contest to see who finishes first: Brown/Black Tweed vs. Lipstick! The race is on.
