sweater knitting

January may have started out all about hats, but I think it will finish being dubbed "Sweater-Month"! I have cast on a Whisper for myself, using my madelinetosh "Mate" - gorgeous inky tones with flashes of cobalt. And to balance all that laceweight knitting, I also cast on a Quintet from Twist Collective (sans stripes) for my girl, in a retina-scorching shade of aqua

and to top it off, my copy of "A Stitch In Time, Knitting and Crochet Patterns, 1920-1949 Vol. 1" by Jane Waller and Susan Crawford arrived!

First cab off the rank will most likely be "It Cannot Fail to Please" by Susan Waller. This little sweater was already a favorite, but this version 100% sold me.

And I also love, love, LOVE this little sweater!

"Enchanting in Black and White". I will definitely be making this, most likely in exactly the same combination of yarn and colours as show, because I think it's just perfect.
