This is my new favorite sweater! I cast on last winter, but put it on hold to participate in Tasha's Briar Rose Knit Along since both sweaters called for my size 3 needles. Once I finished my Briar Rose, I wasn't too much in the mood for knitting with the uncharacteristically hot summer we had. Now that fall is here, I made it point to finish this sweater.
Maybe it's the knitted lace edging, or the delicate detailing of the stitches, or that fact that it's a fuzzy pink sweater, but I am loving wearing this. I even made it a point to use some of Emma's snap fasteners to close up the neck opening in the back - it has been fun trying to incorporate some of her sewing notions into as many projects as I can.

Finishing this darling little sweater has me really excited to start my next knitting project. I still haven't decided if it will be another sweater or some stockings, but either project will be a fun knit.
The pattern is from the 1940's and is called Knit it in Kiss Stitch. You can find it for free on Faded Splendour's website. This was really fun to knit up, I loved how the criss-cross stitches kept things interesting.
Live in this moment and love life!
