deep rose

The past two weeks I worked on this lightweight pullover sweater. The pattern is called Breakwater and I had knit it once before and liked it enough to make it again. The yarn is a fingering/sock weight but is knit on mostly US size 7 needles making it drape nicely since the yarn calls for a 1 needle. I used Skinny Bugga yarn by Sanguine Gryphon in a color called Rose Weevil and the hand-dyed wool is 80 % superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon and is really lovely to work with.
