Sweater Picture

Here is a picture of sweater. Did not attatch first time!

Oldie, but Goodie !

I designed and knit this sweater 30 years ago. I was exploring the Nordic tradition, so this was knit in the round with cut steeks for the sleeves. I added the red hem facings to add a secret dash of fun and pazazz! This was a "cropped" style which a big departure from the long and loose sweaters that I was making at that time. I wore this yesterday and received raves and compliments.

Best invisible increase?

I am currently knitting the Scot Wars Bonnet, a Scottish style cap based on a 17th Century pattern. I really like the simple pattern instructions and I think the bonnet will be great for our clan gatherings. However, one down side of the simple instructions is lack of detail.
