We saw (maybe?) our last snow of the season on Sunday morning and felt again the child-like wonder and awe that always comes over us all with new snow. My sweater had been finished for about a week but I hadn’t worn it because I’d been recovering from the flu and just wanted to save wearing it for the first time for when I actually felt normal. It’s the first sweater I’ve knit for myself so I was a bit nervous I would mess up the sizing. I slipped it on Sunday morning and Brandon snapped a few photos of me (sorry for the crazy lighting) and then we went out with the kids for a walk in the snow. The arms are a tad bit long, as I added about 2 inches of length to both the body and the sleeves, but I’d rather them be long then short. It truly is so cozy and warm without being too heavy. I loved every minute of knitting it. Totally easy, relaxing, and simple. Shepherd’s wool is so squishy and soft and just 100% wool. The colorway, “sea breeze,” makes me think of the ocean. I could definitely see myself knitting it again.
