to give a helping hand.

I recently had the opportunity to help out a fellow knitter by offering to test out one of her patterns, and I am in LOOOVEEE with it already.  This knit is a bit of a challenge for me as well as I am stretching my wings and attempting some fairisle/ 2 color knitting AND a proper sweater.  The end result you will probably see on my little one in a few months…

The pattern calls for sock weight/ fingering yarn and before I went out to buy a new skein) I found an unused skein of yarn hiding in the bottom of my yarn basket (what a shame, I know!)! So this sweet little knit is being created in a lovely skein of Madelinetosh TOSH SOCK in color Astrid Grey. {Insert heart eyed emoji here…..}

The knitting is simple but beautiful (I love simple knits that become wardrobe staples) and I’m looking forward the the challenge of colorwork! But until then I’ll be found on the trains as your neighborhood subway knitter plugging away on this little beauty…
