A lonely sweater

I’m really anthropomorphizing the heck out of yarn and sweaters these days. Do you think our knitted wool is lonely when we’re not wearing it? This sweater might just eagerly be awaiting some baby limbs and torso to wrap itself around. Who knows. Here are some still life shots of her new Neighborly.


I’m too excited to  wait until Z is over her cold to post the finished object. I plan on photographing her and Matt at the same time, since they will be wearing their matching family sweaters out of the Cascade 220 Pyrite Heather.

neighborlyI picked the button up at my LYS. It’s a Dill brand button. I used this kind on my Larch Cardigan also. I really like them.

neighborly-3I knitted a contrasting color for the hem, just because I like the look of it. Knitted hems are so satisfying. I even like the rhythm of sewing them down. Shhhh. Don’t tell anyone that I like finishing sometimes.

The inside of the sleeves has a little contrast too. This might end up making the sleeve too thick when she wears it. If that’s the case, I might undo it later, but for now I really like it. The cream color is some stashed Creative Focus Worsted, back when it was made by Nashua, not Rowan.

neighborly-2For now this lonely little sweater can just wait in the closet and anticipate all the future joy and play that its occupant will enjoy.

  1. Ah, so cute! Once I’m done my crazy shawl I have a few baby knits planned (for friends) and I can’t wait.

    I don’t think they’re lonely so much as filled with anticipation. I like to think my knits are as excited to be worn as I am to wear them. You know, because hand knits have thoughts.
