it's about time.

After a long spell of making only quick little projects, I decided it was time to dive into another sweater.
Antler caught my eye.  Dove grey (2203) for the main color.  Citron (2202) for the contrasting color.

I'm headed to see some blue waters and hope to make a little dent in this.  Or not.  At least I have a project for the airplane ride.  My absolute favorite place for uninterrupted knitting.

Enjoy the last of March!

I love Antler!! I'm a new knitter and Antler is going to be my first sweater. I have other things on the needles right now, but when I decide I'm ready/able to knit up a sweater, Antler it will be! Love your colour choices very much

and your color selection is perfect.
It's been over a year since I've knit a sweater, also, Leslie
This would be so great to dive back in with - love it.
And so you.

It looks as if you've got a wonderful knitting project on board with your for the holiday. Looks as if you will be playing a bit with the gauge of the lovely Antler patter by using the pretty linen blend yarn.

I know what a fine knitter you are, and look forward to seeing your reports of the knitting the results...and also your holiday photos.

Best wishes.

That sweater is so very you. I can't wait to hear your review of the pattern and yarn. Wiggle your toes in the sand for me too.

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh. I pinned that sweater (twice on accident actually) and was wondering if a very nearly non-knitter could learn enough to get it done.

I'll be excited to see how it turns out!
