imogen tee

I finished my Imogen tee a few weeks ago, just before a heat wave brought triple-digit temperatures to Kentucky. No way was I putting on a wool sweater in that weather, even for a few minutes of photos. Rain clouds rolled in last weekend and broke the swelter, so I can finally share my Imogen tee with you!

It's a dream of a sweater. The gray wool and silk feels so soft and light. Because it's a tee, it's casual enough for a neighborhood stroll, but the frost flower lace makes it fancy enough for a day at the office or art museum. I should be able to wear my Imogen tee in fall and spring and layer it over dresses and long-sleeved shirts in winter.

The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow. I don't like knitting sleeves, so these short ones were perfect for me. I'd definitely recommend this pattern! 

I used Quince and Co.'s Tern yarn, a wool and silk blend that's soft and smooth. The pale dove gray of the Oyster colorway is one of my favorites. It will pair well with many other colors, so I expect this tee to be a wardrobe staple.
