Every year I participate in NaKniSweMo and this year was no exception. I had a rough start – I got partway through knitting a sweater that didn’t fit well and I ended up changing tracks on November 14, giving myself just two weeks to knit an entire sweater. But I was determined to make the most of this lovely handspun, and with a bit of moxie, I rallied and finished a sweater. I couldn’t be happier with the result.
The Fiber: Hello Yarn Merino/Silk in Waterweed
The Yarn: Handspun by me
The Sweater: Moxie Pullover by Amy Christoffers
Earlier this year one of the club colorways from the fabulous Southern Cross Fibre was named for Lady Grey tea. I couldn’t resist spinning it up and pairing it with my favorite tea. Perhaps a mug will complete the collection?
