Red Sweater Day

I'm so excited to show you my second knitted sweater. Strawberry red and mostly cotton, it's perfect for summer cookouts and picnics in the park. It's comfortable with a t-shirt and jeans, and I think it is going to look very cute over a jersey dress. What I love most is that I can wear it right now without having to take a trip to the Southern hemisphere (or Maine). 

The sweater and I had our first evening out together last night. We rented movies and went to the post office. Since K was with us (way to be a third wheel, Honey), I had him get a few photos. The sweater and I are pretty smitten with each other. I think every day should be a red sweater day!

The knitting was great--fast and fun. I left the sweater at home when we went on vacation because it was too big to haul around by that point and found myself missing my knitting time with it. While I do like knitting with wool better, this cotton/wool blend yarn is wonderful to work with on sweaty summer days.  

For more details, check out my Ravelry page.


  1. I love the color and it looks great on you!

  2. It's wonderful! I love it!

    I took a look at "how to knit" books the other've planted a seed.

  3. Cute, cute, cute! Oh, it was worth the wait. Absolutely perfect on you! My favorite is the little flair in the sleeves.

  4. It's a thing of beauty! You must be so, so happy with your creation. I'm proud of you!
