Lupine

New sweater on the needles:

A “wolf paw” lace pattern on the front, stockinette on the back. Cable ribbed hems, probably deeply cabled sleeve cuffs. I’m trying to chart out a compound raglan shape, but that it still sooooo far away!

Fingering weight sweaters are agony and ecstasy.

In the meanwhile, the Chevron Socks pattern is live! Testers have commented they love the fit provided by the slipped stitch heel and ball of the foot, so do give it a try if you want extra wear-resistant socks!

  1. Your sweater is going to be gorgeous – I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I’m working on the boring (stockinnette) part of a Bohus cardi (basically, the whole body) – laceweight yarn on size 1.5 needles, so I know what you mean about it being agony and ecstacy!
