hello winter

A little while ago I was so thrilled when I saw Connie had written up the sweater that had haunted my dreams since she knit it last winter. She agreed to let me join her testknit, and it was such a fun experience. 


The yarn is Knitpicks Swish worsted in 'Amethyst Heather'. It's super soft and lovely to work with.

The Japanese buttons are from Kirsten's shop here. I've had them for awhile, waiting for a good application. I love them on this.

Gorgeous cables all over the place never let it get boring. I love how they're balanced on the piece so perfectly. An idea for a sweater so much like this had been tumbling around in my head for ages, so it was almost creepy when I saw Connie's. Also, thrilling that she had already forged the path. I've worn this many times already this week since it's been so cold. Perfect sweater!

Note: my girl took the photos and she has had a thing lately for dramatic angles - I wasn't actually leaning.


  1. Gorgeous sweater with that wonderful yarn. I love it! You can't help but pet it. :) You may have a future photographer there in your house. :)

  2. The sweater is just gorgeous! I love the color too. I quite like the angled photos!

  3. Somehow the purple really shows off the cable details. Beautiful!

  4. I love your blog and have nominated you for a Leibster award! http://sockknittinglara.blogspot.com/
