Laurie's Sweater

11 comments
Truth be told- this sweater was not originally for Laurie -- it was for Natalie - whose birthday is on Saturday. But when I realized how off I was on with my math - I didn't have the heart to frog the sweater, and decided to change the recipient. To make the sweater more Laurie - I changed it to have short sleeves - making it more of a summer sweater, in tune with the yarn I had chosen for this project.

The yarn is very lightweight - made with Elisabeth Lavold's Silky Wool. I used a pattern from Stephanie Japel's Fitted Knits. Very light-weight, very summery.
And, as you might have noticed, Laurie is not modeling this Sweater. Laurie is both shy, and lazy - so when it came time for her to model the sweater, she dissappeared, so, Chelsey volunteered to wear the sweater for these pictures. Thanks Chelsey!

Very pretty! I would love to learn to knit but lots of folks shy away from teaching someone left handed. I shouldn't let that stop me. Learning to knit is on my short list of things to learn to do.

The sweater is wonderful whoever gets to wear it.

Knitting is one of the few crafts where left-handed people have the advantage! Those of us who are lefties pick up continental style (which is the faster/more efficent way of knitting) much faster! When I went into a knitting shop to learn to knit they said they love it when lefties come in to learn to knit!

Shelbie, Wow! That sweater looks amazing! I am still terrified of knitting but all these things you keep making are making it very hard for me to not want to give it a go. Have you ever heard of cottonclouds.com? By some strange coincidence it is located in my home town where I was just visiting in AZ. The owner was so nice and let me come and take a tour of her shop. She had the most beautiful yarns. I kept thinking of you while I was there and couldn't help but pick you up a little something. I can get your address from your mom, or you and send it on over.
That sweater really is beautiful! Love Stacy
