Practicality Reigns

No, it wasn't exciting to knit. But will I wear it? You betcha.



Pattern from Rowan's pattern book, "The Cocoon Collection". Pattern is the Lyra Sweater. I removed the eyelet motif at the bottom edge of the sweater ensuring that it be the most practical garment I would ever knit. Yarn is Rowan's Cocoon in color Frost.

I wanted something I could throw on and would be easy to wear, and I got it.

yeah i'm all about making things I'd wear rather than picking a fancy project that take forever to finish and it just live in the closet at the end.

This is fantastic! I came across the picture on Flickr, and I had to follow it to your blog. Great sweater, and it looks so great for every day wear!

Perfect - style and colour. Sometimes all we really need is a basic knit.
