Remember when I said that I only wanted to knit sweaters out of dk or worsted-weight yarn? Or even chunky? Well, never say never, my friends, because now it’s spring, and my thoughts are turning lightly to thoughts of fingering. Especially because summer has been very slow in coming here in Wisconsin, and I am still sporting jeans and a long-sleeved shirt right now… I’m even wearing wool socks!

With two little guys now, we spend a lot of time watching Little League games, and the field’s high, flat location means it’s always windier and chillier there than most places in town. So, a nice, light, fingering wool sweater strikes me as the perfect thing for this time of year!


My spring sweater pick: 5200K, by Suvi Simola. The clean, simple lines look great on everyone who’s knit it, and I’m using one of my gradients for the yoke. I kind of fell in love with this color.

For my next sweater:

A couple of days ago, one of my favorite design teams, Tincanknits, paired up with one of my favorite indy dyers, Sweetgeorgia Yarns, to release the elegant, simple, lacy, pretty much perfect spring sweater, Raindrops. Looking at the design intrigued me so much that I checked out all of their other patterns and found what looks like the perfect warm-weather sweater; laceweight, beautiful neckline detail: Bonny. Can’t wait to keep on knitting and be able to wear these!
