September Morn

I finished a sweater, the kind of sweater I’ve been craving all winter long.  September Morn by Thea Colman.

I made a few changes: knitting it at the same gauge but in sport weight rather than worsted; I carried the ribbing all the way down the sleeves because while stopping it looked great in her version many of the versions looked oddly goofy at the transition; and I carried the ribbing detail from the raglan into the body for a ‘seam’.

My collar won’t do ‘cowl’, it’s just a turtleneck.  I’m not certain why that is.  I did follow the directions and I also made certain to block the top half wider.

I’m really pleased.  And the blizzard this week meant that, as usual, March isn’t too late for finishing sweaters around here.
