Trying to get a 13-year-old to be serious during a photoshoot is a fruitless task . . .
I knit this sweater for me, but hated how it looked on – I should have guessed, since bat-wing cropped is not my best look 🙂 I think it’s adorable on her, though.
Pattern: Turtle Dove
Yar: Illimani Amelie (56% mulberry silk / 40% baby alpaca / 4% merino) – 5 skeins (164 yds/ea) in color Hunter
Needles: US 10s and 9s (ribbing)
Size: M (54.25″)
It’s too bad, because this yarn is so incredibly soft, I’d love to wear it next to my skin! I bought a SQ’s worth at The Mariner’s Daughter in Nova Scotia, and then really struggled to come up with a pattern that was a good match to the yarn – I think this one is, it just isn’t my style.
