Finally Done!

With my City Tweed Sweater, that is!

I’m very, very happy with this piece. What else can I say? It was a long project, but enjoyable at every step of the way, the yarn is luscious, the sweater is warm, but thanks to the lace patterning, not stifling, and I’m wearing it today even though it’s probably 80 degrees out. (Our office is air-conditioned. And yes, I’m a little crazy.)

The details:

Pattern: Oblique by Veronik Avery, available as a free pattern from
Yarn: City Tweed HW in Jacquard, 8 balls.
Needles: US 7 for the cardigan, US 6 for the collar and buttonbands.

What a fun project! Now, to move on to more seasonally-appropriate lace knitting. <
