I've managed to keep my Jump for Fall challenge alive by having a sweater on the needles at all times. Wait -- correction: now that I've finished my Derry Raglan & Cowl, I'll be searching around for a new winter knit to cast on, but for now, I'm basking in the satisfaction of another hand-knit sweater in my closet!
This raglan pullover was great to knit -- the pattern instructions are incredibly clear, sizing was spot on, and the lace detail running down the sleeves kept the knitting interesting. With the removable cowl as an added detail, the pullover sports two different looks which is a bonus.
I didn't knit with a particular high-end, luxurious yarn. Nope, I chose Paton's Classic Wool, a true workhorse yarn, and I'm delighted to say that it was a great match with the pattern.
Purloining from the Knitmore Girls' podcast, I happen to be in stitches today: wearing my newly finished sweater and these! I'm so warm and cozy, I'm not even blinking at the next impending snow storm that's heading to the east coast.
