Poppy (V-Neck Pullover)

It's been a long time since I've posted here but I just finished this sweater and thought I'd share. I used Briar Rose Fibers gorgeous Sonoma yarn. The sweater pattern is called Poppy and is from the book Yarn Play by Lisa Shobhana Mason. The sweater is meant to be form fitting but I made mine a little big so I can wear lots of layers underneath on those really cold Michigan days.

Finished "Corduroy"

After having put this sweater aside numerous times for other, time-sensitive projects, I finally finished it. This is the Corduroy sweater from A Fine Fleece (Lisa Lloyd) and is knit with Legend. I bought this yarn two years ago at Rhinebeck, my first Rhinebeck, actually. I was so overwhelmed by the experience! This yarn waited until I found a pattern I thought would work well with it, something simple to let the yarn speak for itself. I think this was a perfect fit!
