So I'm a little tired and lacking inspiration so instead of writing an actual post I was wandering round the internet checking some of my favourite blogs - like the ever inspiring Fringe Association. And today Karen is asking the question - What's the knit you can't you live without? As I posted the photo above last week of my favourite on instagram I thought I would just show it to you.
I loved reading the comments on Karen's post - there are some fantastic sweater suggestions in there. If you feel like adding to the list of favourite sweaters then head on over and leave a comment on the Fringe post. What a great communal list! (I've turned comments off for this post so I don't steal her post ;)).
My all-time favourite is Vitamin D by Heidi Kirrmaier and all the Ravelry details can be found here. It was my second try at Vitamin D. The first time I made it I made it with the flaps at the front before realising that I wasn't that kind of girl. Second try was perfect - a generic kinda V-neck cardy with a little detail. I wear it all the time and it is the perfect complement to the 95% blue/grey wardrobe that I have. The 3/4 sleeves make it suitable for 3 seasons here and the yarn looks like it did the day I made it - I adore this yarn (Old Maiden Aunt Alpaca Silk). It is the combination of the pattern and the yarn that really makes it sing for me.
I probably have one other which is the first cardigan photo in my post on how to choose a sweater pattern. That cardy rocks! Oh and James. I can't forget James. Or Lila…. who could forget Lila. Actually I wear all four of those all the time!
See you all Friday with an update on the How to get faster at knitting post.
