Baudelaire Sweater

This is the sweater that I’m working on and just adore. It’s a Berroco Pattern from their Berroco Blackstone Tweed Booklet. I’m making the Baudelaire sweater.

The yarn has a mix of angora and mohair in the wool and I love it. I’ve read complaints about it breaking and it being difficult to work with if you are a tight knitter (which I am, never once have I had the luxury of not going way up in needle sizes), but I haven’t had any trouble.

I’m using the suggested colour, Nor’Easter. I decided I needed to broaden the colour palate of my wardrobe , otherwise I would have chosen yet another purplish yarn.

This is just an intro to the sweater, prepare yourself for an onslaught of posts to come. I’d like to be able to have a new little project every few days, but seeing as I have very little time for knitting as it is, this one will be around for a while. Which I’m totally okay with!
