FO: Japanese Lopi Sweater

I usually like to include the name of the pattern in my blog titles, but as this sweater is so sexily named #26 page 44, I simply called it Japanese Lopi Sweater. The “page 44” refers to the page number of the Japanese Iceland Lopi book (Etsy link), which is […]

My Favorite Fall Sweater

Andi over at Untangling Knots asked the impossible: show off your favorite fall sweater. The request itself is not so bad. There’s nothing harmful in asking people to show off their favorite sweater that they’ve knit themselves. OR IS THERE? Asking a knitter to choose their favorite anything is a […]
