middlefield pullover

August 2, 2010

a few weeks ago, i placed a special order at webs for a color of terra that we don’t carry to make myself the middlefield pullover, which is the cover sweater of melissa and cecily’s book. it came in on the same day the book did! i had a spare week, so i zoomed through it.

the yarn is gorgeous.

and i used two of my favorite buttons!

i made a few alterations (left out waist shaping, shortened sleeves, lengthened body, and the obvious two buttons instead of three) but just because of my own preferences – the pattern was great. not to mention how relaxing it was not to have to take notes on every aspect of the garment! also, the book is gorgeous, but pretty much every knitter in the world knows that already!

      yeah, me too! i seem to collect acidic green yarn, but this is definitely the best in color, texture, and feel. it’s sort of weird that i love it so much since i have a serious personal bias against alpaca! i think it’ll get a lot of wear, though.

    Oh yess… I love that pattern, and you knitted it very fast since we have the book for what… 2-3 weeks? Congratulation!! I LOVE IT!!

      yes, i had to knit it pretty quickly! i only had a week or two that i could justify using to knit something for myself, so i was knitting pretty much every spare moment i could get 🙂
