Lapis Yoke Pullover

knittin, reading and waiting for our flight
This was my intended to be my official Iceland knitting project. I had lofty dreams of knitting every day in the car, but I was too enamored with the scenery to bother casting on. Because I didn't get started on it until the very end of our trip, it ended up being my airplane/jet lag recovery project instead.

I was able to finish the yoke, separate for the sleeves and start the body by the time we landed in Detroit. It kept me awake through some very cheesy airplane movies (Chipmunks: The Squeakuel anyone?)

Lapis Yoke
This was such and enjoyable sweater to knit and now I'm totally sold on knitting from the top down. The yarn, Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran, was a dream to use and I was fortunate enough to find a half off sale last winter to acquire it because it's on the pricey side. This sweater is so soft and silky and squishy and I think it will get a lot of use this winter.

Jon says that it's the most normal, store bought looking sweater that I've made so far and I agree. I guess I should make sweaters in this style more often.

  3. It's beautiful!
    Alvin and The Chipmunks The Squeakuel is the sort of movie I see in the theater. To be honest, it's not the worst movie I've seen with my kids! My Maggie loves the Chipettes. :)

  8. Love the detail and simplicity of this one. It does look lovely on you, nice job! I too have suffered through the squeakel, Jackson caught a glimpse of it on t.v. the one day and had to watch it.

  10. So, is your secret to all your great clothing knitting that you do the gauge test at the start? I'm always too lazy, maybe that's why my knitting either doesn't work out or I just stay away from structured/fitting things...
    The sweater looks great, very professional knitting!
    The first photo with the table - where are you at? I see another lady knitting, but Jon (?) isn't, so it can't be a crafty meeting :)
    I must have missed this post somehow in the pre-christmas busy-ness...
    Happy New Year!
