Be Yours, Too
Go Take a Hike!


Kym's beautiful sweater lead me to take the necessary steps needed to jump into my first sweater in 2 years. Two years! I'm having trouble understanding my lack of sweaterly pride. Since the year of 12 sweaters in 12 months (which was 2009), I've only knit two sweaters and they were in 2011, but Kym's sweater left me hankering for something new.

The cold weather had me hankering for something very warm and I found just what I was looking for in my "favorites" on Ravelry. The yarn on hand, as well as the desire for a sweater that would go quickly, had me ogling Chicane. Look at the sleeves! They look very cool, unique, and fun to knit


Beaverslide's Natural Heather had been sitting in the stash for several years and my plan had always been to knit a jacket style sweater. Chicane fit the bill, although I'm not a fan of zippered fronts, and I'm looking into options, such as an I-cord or small button band. I just finished the back, which leaves me plenty of time to decide. I think I'll start a sleeve next...just for fun.


Great color and that will be a wonderful sweater for you. I've been wanting to knit a sweater for myself but I'm waiting - for now. And why no zipper love? I love a zippered sweater!

LOVE that sweater pattern! It will be a great one for you! (And I'm with Carole -- I love zippered cardigan.) I just know this one will be worth the wait!

You can't go wrong with BT and Beaverslide. I'm so glad you're knitting yourself a sweater, grrl. We all need new warm lovelies!!!

That looks lovely Margene! I've got a bit of a sweater pull myself but started socks on Sunday. Oh the fickle knitter!

I'm sure it will be great.

The sleeves are amazing. This looks like a very wearable sweater! Happy Valentine's Day!

Ooooh, I can see you wearing that sweater!!!

Looks like it'll be really cozy when it's done!!

Hmm. Did you give yourself sweater burnout in 2009?

That will be so lovely when it's done. I was very interested in those sleeves too. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the completed sweater.

Woo Hoo!
