autumn mist

This is another pattern I test knit recently: it's the Mountain Mist sweater found here, by Susi Ferguson (her blog is here). Susi is another person I'm so happy to know and I love her designs. I used Wollmeise Merino Superwash and 80/20 Twin for the main colours and Renaissance Dyeing Blue Faced Leicester for the secondary colours.

Although it's stranded, the combination of fingering weight superwash wools makes it drapey and light. I made the sleeves 3/4 length as I think I'll mostly wear it in the spring and summer.

It's been so busy around here lately I haven't been able to get more photos of it finished (the one above, taken on a -35c day happened just before the camera battery died), but here are some in progess shots.

This wasn't a fast knit, but certainly fun. I think I'll wear this one a lot.


  1. Love it!!! Gorgeous colors and the sleeves are perfect. Great idea so that you can wear it longer. :)

  2. That is gorgeous! You will have to wear it into the store sometime, I'd love to see it up close!
