It's May Day and my birthday and now it's also Blog Day. Time for me to enter the wonderful world of blogging knitters.
After a 17 year hiatus, I returned to Juneau last July with my family. This is the sweater that I began knitting when we decided to embark on this adventure. It was my talisman. I knit when I couldn't face packing. I knit on rest stops during our 1800 mile car trip from California to Prince Rupert, BC. I knit on the ferry ride to Juneau.
I wasn't a monogamous knitter, however. Other things got knit along the way (stay tuned for future posts about them). But I always returned to The Sweater and it finally got finished a few weeks ago.
Pattern: Northern Lights Jacket
Designed by Arnhild Hillesland for Mostly Merino
Yarn: Mostly Merino worsted weight
Hand-dyed by the wonderful Margaret Klein Wilson
Needles: Addi Turbo US 6 and US 7
44.1 degrees Fahrenheit and the sun is peeking out. Time for a walk.
