As soon as I saw this sweater I knew I would make it. It’s a Japanese design by Ririko for the Amirisu 2013 Spring Edition. I am very fond of the simplicity and elegance you often find in Japanese design.
I used Madelinetosh Tosh Light for my sweater. Perhaps a brighter or stronger color would have been better but I didn’t get the chance. Well, I’m fine with it actually because I love Madelinetosh anyway no matter the colorway. The truth is that it was the only colorway still available in the right quantity when I ordered this yarn in France. Madelinetosh is just so badly wanted that it’s recommended to order immediately upon new arrivals. Here’s another great lesson for future knitting!
My daughter and I have the same size – except that she’s a bit(!) more slim than I am – and we both wanted this sweater. I won this time, but it honestly did look a bit too big on her.
This sweater it just so so comfy. I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes one of my favorites. I even wore it to the office, which I normally don’t and got great compliments on it.
I am wondering … how often do you wear your hand knit projects? I definitely don’t wear it enough, I really don’t. I often have a feeling of uncertainty about it and even slight embarrassment. I know it’s stupid, but can’t help it. Do you get the same feeling about your hand knitwear? Let me know, I’m really curious about it.
