WIP for years

If you knit a lot you probably have a basket or 2 (or 2 extra large, could fit a body in them, tubs) with projects that are waiting to be finished. I used to be A LOT better at starting a project and finishing it in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, the more I have knit the quicker I become bored with a pattern. Please don’t even ask about my husband’s sweater from 9 years ago that is ALMOST done. Thank goodness it’s a classic design so it will always look nice.

ANYWAYS…the project I finished last night has only been kicking around for about 2 years. It’s the Lady Sunnyside sweater from Tanis Fibre Arts. I love her patterns but this is the first of her sweater patterns that I have knit. Find the pattern on Ravelry here

Cable detailed version with 3/4 sleeves.

Lace detailed option with long sleeves.

I chose the option with long sleeves and the lace detail. This sweater is also a top-down knit and who doesn’t LOVE that! I especially love a top-down because I have oddly long arms so it’s fab to be able to try on a sweater as you go and get those sleeves just so. I think this would be a great beginner pattern too because it’s a pretty straight forward knit with the detail only at the edges. Her patterns are well-written and easy to follow, I think.

I have NOT blocked this yet or weaved in the ends (I’ll do that this weekend, I hope), but I wanted to give you a peak…

This is my 3rd or 4th sweater out of Madeline Tosh Vintage. LOVE! If you can buy it somewhere please do. Colours are always gorgeous and lush to knit with.
