  • Gathered

    Great is the road I climb,
    but the garland offered by an easier route is not worth the gathering.
    -Propertius

    OK, OK crewneck it is. The response is overwhelming, and I think we're all agreed that it would be a problem to interrupt the lovely snowflake. The good news is that now I think it'll be done by the end of the week. In the meantime, since I'm past the halfway point of NaBloPoMo, let's review a sweater I finished back during The Great Blogging Drought of 2008.

    Gathered Pullover
    Pattern: from Interweave Knits, Winter 2007
    Yarn: Garnstudio Silke-Tweed, about 6 skeins
    Needles: US 7
    Notes: Great easy pattern in the round, no mods.
    Best Thing About This Project: A great San Diego sweater.
    There you see a sneak photo by my dad when we were in Santa Fe (James - that's a golden doodle - let's get one!), but you can see that it's in action. Unlike the Dale, this is the perfect weight sweater for most of the year in San Diego. Initially I was a little skeptical, but seeing Loribird's here made me realize it was the perfect project for this yarn, which is some of the oldest in my stash. I got it from the sale bin of a small shop in Rhode Island on a rainy day my senior year of college. Eek! Anyway, now it's finally come to fruition, and getting a lot of wear. In fact, I wore it out last night.

    Yay, crewneck wins.

    Gathering is a cute sweater, but not nearly as cute as that Doodle.

    Ooops, sorry about the unclear last sentence of that last post. What I meant to say was, we hope you are still able to come Saturday and we are very excited to see you. Whew, I guess I need some more sleep. ;)
