Once Is Not Enough


I had so much fun knitting my sweater. I haven't had a knitting project that I had so much trouble putting down for ages.  So my daughter picked out yarn in lovely pastels for one for her.  It's hard to believe but the second one is even more fun to knit.  Sometimes something easy like a top down sweater is just the relaxing kind of knitting I want to do.  The random changing colors keep it interesting. The pattern is Gilet cout d'ete by Marie-Adeline Boyer. I love this pattern! This one is Lion Brand "Amaze" in carnival colorway.  The original pattern has cute little short sleeves, but I decided I would like longer sleeves.  Making the change was easy.  The second sweater will have long sleeves as well.  I'm waiting impatiently for the arrival of a pale green beach glass button from Maine for this one.  I used one of my beach stone buttons from the great lakes on mine.  I hope you will excuse me now, I have time for a few more rows!
