devotion

Well, I finally finished a sweater.  And boy, did it feel good.  Just looking for the time to knit has been my problem lately. I still have plenty of desire, trust me.  It's just all. about. time.  
I love how this turned out.  And to tell you the truth, i think it's the perfect little sweater. Great for spring.  Or fall.  Or winter if you are on the warmer side.  A lot of stockinette.  Seed stitch edging.  A little cable detail.  Sleeves that end just as soon as you cast on.  Perfect!
Pattern:  Devotion
Yarn:  Mountaintop Vista by Classic Elite, 7 hanks
Needles:  US 6
Size:  36 1/2

I have a few mitts on the needles.  However,  I'm on the hunt for a new sweater pattern.  Anyone have a favorite?  I'd love if you shared it with us.

Smitten! It looks lovely on you. I'm eager to see what your friends suggest here. I'm knitting Boardwalk. I've got big dreams to knit more especially out of stash. Time is the issue. As Jasmin of Knitmore Girls says, "I knit faster in my imagination."

Renee said...

lovely knit!!

Amy said...

I love anything Heidi Kirrmaier. Right now I've got her Tea with Jam and Bread on the needles in Portland Tweed. Perfect casual pattern in the perfect tweed. I know you're a fan of Portland Tweed.

That sweater is gorgeous! And it works so well with the plaid shirt you're wearing it with.

I totally understand the frustration when knitting time isn't as great as the time you want to have for it - congratulations on finishing the sweater anyway!

Maureen said...

LOVE this Leslie! I'm so happy to see you knitting again! I just ordered the pattern - perfect for layering for all seasons of the year! I think of you oftern - sending you hugs!

Love your sweater! So versatile. Wow, I love love love the sleeves (or lack of sleeves to knit!). I am knitting "Grace," a cardigan. Just finished up the body and am getting ready to start on the sleeves. It's been a great pattern/project!!

Hilary said...

Oh my goodness, so cute. So, so, so cute! And, yes, perfect for many season!

My favorite sweater is the Hooray Cardigan -- http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hooray-cardigan

It's more of a fall/winter cardi, but it was a LOT of fun to make and I've loved wearing it!

Zenitude said...

I knitted two cardigans this winter. I love love love my Antler and wear it often. It's great for spring and fall weather.

And I also knitted Lush and I love the bright colour and this one is lighter and can be worn indoors too.

Old Town by Carol Sunday. Love how it is knitted, and love the turn technique to replace wrap and turn. Totally cool! I also love On the Beach~ a free pattern by Grasflecken. So fast to knit up in a cotton blend for summer. It is oversized making it great to wear over camisoles, sundresses, etc... ~Jan

Kristyn Knits said...

I just went out to look at Rosemary's favorites...the "water-and-stone" looks like you! Great suggestion Rosemary!

Hannah said...

I love that shade of gray! And the length of the cabled section in the front is strange and perfect. This pattern is definitely going on my to-make list.
