This tweed, originally purchased for this sweater, has been on my mind a lot lately… so much so that I even dreamed about it last week. I was still working on my socks, however, and needed to finish before I started anything new. However, now that the socks are off the needles (and have been worn several times since!), I was ready to start working with this beautiful yarn. I discovered that this Dalegarn Sisik is a dead-on gauge match for several of the tweedy Rowan yarns, so it was the perfect substitute for one of the patterns that I have admired many times…
'Tis Cherie from the beautiful book, Vintage Knits, originally published by Rowan as Vintage Style in 2004.
However, I am already thinking about what pants, skirts and handknit socks will match this pullover… so, as you can see, it is my destiny to knit this sweater.
On Halloween night, while on trick-or-treat door duty, I cast on for Cherie… and I made some real progress! It has to be the yarn. It just flows through my fingers so well, and I am in love with this color.
Back ribbing complete, and 1.5 inches into the stockinette body.
This is going to be good… I have that feeling!
