Summer Sweaters!

This has been my year of sweaters – I’ve finished 3 so far and have yarn and patterns picked out for at least 5 more.  (My sock knitting has seriously suffered during this obsession with sweaters – I have not finished one pair yet this year!)  Now that it’s finally getting warmer here in the Pacific Northwest, what’s a sweater knitter to do?  I still want to make them but having a lap full of wool or alpaca doesn’t sound appealing.

My IDP designers came through for me!

Brittany Tyler’s recently released a second pattern with us (her first, the Embossed Argyle Sweater Vest is one of my sweaters I already have yarn picked out for)




and I absolutly adore it.  And it’s in Simply Cotton Worsted – perfect!

Her April Cardigan!  I really love the back detail

Then Alice Tang has two nice summery knits, her new Chevron Shell & this great tank top out of Shine Sport:

It’s her Totally Tubular Camisole  – how cute!

One of my favorite designers, Erica Jackofsky, has a great top out of Comfy Worsted, her Petticoat Loose Tank:

And Andrea Rangel has a gorgeous one in Comfy Sport!

(Springtime Lace Tank)

So even though the sun is shining & the air is warmer here, my year of sweaters will continue on!
