The adventures of a knit designer, her dog, and yarn stash. I'm the author of Doggie Knits, Sweaters and Accessories for Your Best Friend.

I love the name of this color--it sounds like a man's name, and just cracks me up. I started this sweater when a student was making one in project class, at my suggestion. I thought the cable pattern was easy--and even though she has had problems with it, I still stand by my opinion--I had the pattern memorized before the first repeat was done. For some reason, cables go faster for me. This is the Brigid Jacket from the lovely book Vintage Modern Knits. For the first time, I'm using Malabrigo worsted, and I understand fully why this yarn gets so much love. Like buttah. I'm now working on the not so interesting parts that don't have cables.
