Sweater Weather…

…my favorite time of the year!

Well, its almost sweater weather.

I’ve taken two weeks away from blogging and enjoyed a trip to Carmel CA and the school year started (one week apart) for each child.

(Yay!  Free time for myself!!)

It has been a busy few weeks.

Now, it is time to get back into a schedule.

Before I left for CA, I completed a WIP that is on my YOP 2018/2019 list-The Telluride Kimono Sweater.

I saw this on Mama In a Stitch’s site and loved it.

I started it long ago (I think it was also on my 2017/2018 YOP list) and thought it was time to power through and finish it.

An easy pattern, just two rectangles seamed together.

Made with Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, it was a quick project (once I decided to focus on it and it only).

I cast on cast on 35 stitches (L/XL) but made the 43″ length.

It looks cute open and if I want it closed in the front, a shawl pin will work quite well.

It is SUPER warm and will be great when the weather finally breaks and Fall arrives.

I’m not quite sure why I can’t find this pattern on Ravelry, but it is a free pattern at the site (link above).

I also am using the JojiFallKAL as motivation to finally make The Easy Bulky One.

I purchased the pattern and yarn when the original The Easy One KAL was happening, but never cast on.

Normally, I would never have spent the amount of money I did on the recommended yarn, but I had several call shifts in a row where I was called in all night and treated myself.

I’m nervous, but I swatched (for the first time ever) and I managed to achieve gauge…so I cast on and am going forward.

I’ll keep you updated.

Thats it for right now!

Have a great week!

(Also, to make room for more pictures, I have deleted approximately 100 pictures from the blog-mainly pictures of projects I blogged but never completed or pictures that were repetitive.  So, if you see missing pictures on old posts, it is not a mistake.  Thanks)

    Yours looks better than the original! Lovely pictures of your holiday and glad you got one! All Mothers deserve a break and time to restore and refresh and what a perfect time right before the school year. I hope your family is well and that you continue your creative journey….it’s a pleasure to be able to join you. Have a great week and give those kids a big hug from me and wish them the best school year ever.
