Two sweaters to knit again (and again?)

Occasionally we finish projects so successfully that we're tempted to cast on all over again without delay.  Dawn and Kate both recently finished sweaters that they are thrilled with and want to share with you.DavisThis is the Davis pullover designed by Pam Allen.  The pattern calls for Quince and Co.'s aran weight 100% linen Kestrel yarn.  Dawn used 10 skeins on a US 9 needle and made a few pattern modifications to add a bit of overall length to the sweater as well as widening the arms a bit for a more comfortable fit.It is lovely!  And totally repeatable.  Kate has plans to cast on for one of her own before summer's end.liv-light-07aJust off her needles is Liv Light designed by Carrie Bostick Hoge and published in her Simple Pleasures spring / summer collection.  You can find Kate's project notes here.  She used just a bit more than 7 skeins of the Fibre Company's Road to China Light and made very few modifications.liv-light-01The pattern includes a top-down seamless raglan construction that uses short rows to create a great swingy curved hem that pairs beautifully with this yarn's deliciously soft and drapey blend of 65% Alpaca, 15% Silk, 10% Camel and 10% Cashmere.Kate knows that she'll wear this sweater with a sundress for a casual date night as well as her favorite t-shirts for lounging around at home in the evening or headed to the farmer's market in the brisk early morning.A slightly modified version of this sweater can also be knit up in a worsted weight yarn with a slightly longer length and longer sleeves to extend it's wearability into the winter months.  You can find the Liv pattern details here.  It is very likely that Kate will create one for the shop so that you can try them both on when you visit.
