Jazzy Jeanette

"Fresh and modern" is how one ravelry follower described Jeanette, this latest lacy pullover – thrilling feedback to be sure! And although I'd like to take full design credit, alas, I cannot.  This is the brainchild of Juliet, who wears it so well.  Truly my muse, my daughter aims to keep my thinking young (while nature takes its course with all other parts of me). 

Jeanette is the name of my grand-aunt Margareta's daughter-in-law (and also of her granddaughter) – appropriate namesake for this piece I'd say.  With a slightly longer bodice, three-quarter sleeves, and garter trimming Margareta's been jazzed up a bit – much as, I'd like to think, my girl does for me.

Jazzing up January

Oh the trials of photographing all the details of a black lace sweater in low-light January!  But we've made it work I think, I hope.

Jazzy Jeanette pattern coming soon.

Anne delivered

A short name for a short and happy project! 

Warm and cozy, just what I had in mind for Anne my latest sweater release, a vest with deep pockets and stripes! This is a shapely piece worked in seeded rib check on worsted weight wool.  Its colors intertwine as pocket linings segue into upper bodice stripes that finish at neckline and armhole trims.  The neckline sits just low enough to allow a peek of tee shirt from underneath.  It's a quick knit you'll surely enjoy.

No blocking required, except for pocket linings, as this pleasing fabric lies flat and stays true to gauge. Pieces are knit flat, bottom-up, with seaming, and circular knitting on trims.
