Natalie's New Sweater...

Eek its Friday 13 August 2010...

In June I had one of those crazy weeks when I splurged big time on hand painted wools.  There was the Colinette Jitterbug in several colours... Artist's Palette wools in such a range of colours it was hard to choose... (kid in an old fashioned sweet shop sprang to mind)... Claudia's hand painted sock wool... Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock wool... Fyberspates... and the Natural Dye Studio... I have probable forgotten another...  They duly arrived and I spent much time putting the skeins onto my swift and turning them into lovely little balls on the yarn winder... I wind them quite loosely so that the wool can rest and not be stretched...

Natalie's sweater is a new pattern that I created using one of these balls of hand painted wool...  I started knitting this sweater before I left to visit my mum and while I was away the label got thrown out by Neil while he was tidying up... so I cannot remember which wool this is... It is beautiful though.  Very subtle colours in dusky pink, lilac and light tuquoise...

The collar fastens off centre with one button to allow the sweater to slip over her head...  I love the combination of the textural double moss stitch with the smooth stocking stitch.  I liked the idea of the wide welt at the bottom edge of the sweater with the double moss stitch continuing up the centre front and centre back into the collar...  I knew as soon as the body was finished that the sleeves would be in the double moss stitch too... I had thought it would look nicest this way when I was planning the sweater but I usually keep my option open until I see the sweater on Sasha...

I finished the sweater last night as I want Natalie to wear the new outfit while I am photographing the Baby's Room/Nursery today... I have finally finished the room setting and planned the story (roughly) so it is time to take the hundreds and hundreds of photographs...  

When I came home from Kent... Neil had taken a surprise week off work... so we have gardened... walked... and I have taken the opportunity to do complete a few Sasha related things I just never seemed to have time for...

Back to work on Monday morning...

    Oh yes, it is just lovely. The pale colors are perfect and they showcase the center stitch pattern beautifully. I also find your collar design very ingenious.

    This says there is a free pattern, but I don't see where it is at.
