The Striped Tent

Hello again.  

Switching gears a bit and posting about my recent knitting project.  One of the reasons my scrapbooking posts have been so slow in coming the last month or so is because I've been obsessed about finishing my latest sweater - Stratum by Karolina Eckerdal. It's a wonderfully relaxed, drop shoulder sweater knit in fingering weight yarn.  Unfortunately, relaxed fit sweaters in light weight yarn at my size is a lot of knitting!  I took to calling this project the striped tent.

I used Woolen Rabbit Airy in Arabian Nights and Grey Goose for this sweater. The colors worked wonderfully together, but the variegated yarn did take away from the striped pattern a bit.
