not neutral, but woven stitch

new project

A bigger, plummy wrap version of the woven stitch cowl – I just need to get some decent photos and I can release the pattern! For this one I used super squishy Tanis Fiber Arts DK in plum, and some Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3ply for the silver.

You know what I’d really like to knit? A sweater dress. I don’t know what’s gotten into me with that one, but I really want to make one! Still looking for the right yarn. It should be wool, and lightweight. Hmmm. I’m still working away at my red sweater (yes, that is a sheepfold cable!) and I’m very excited about that one, but my mind’s eye can’t help by wander…

    I would love to see your version of a sweater dress! I am avidly pro-“ambitious, out of the ordinary” projects. I wouldn’t say no to knitting a dress, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the right time to start knitting up some PJ pants. Who wouldn’t want soft wool pants when it’s cold? Come on!

    Oh, I’m working on a sweater dress right now so I completely understand your desire for one. I can’t wait to finish mine – I really want to wear it right now! :)

    Ooooh, I love the woven stitch in this color combo!

    I’ve been dreaming of sweater dresses, too. Not sure if I’ll ever follow through, but the idea of having a warm wooly dress to wear in the wintertime is pretty tempting.

    Beautiful! and you know, I’ve been hankering for a knitted dress too. I designed one for my daughter for her Bat Mitzvah. (You can look it up on Ravelry under my projects) Now I think it’s time for one for me. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    I’ve always wanted to knit a sweater dress but I know it would take me forever.

    I really want a sweater dress, too!!
    I can pinpoint the cause of my desire, though.
    I recently refashioned (put out of its misery) a too small sweater dress and I miss it :(
    Must remedy soon!

    Loving the purple , you/re really wetting my appetite for this patten. I have been saving some local organic handspun for a project. But I’m not sure how it would look. The uniformity of the yarn does play a huge part in this pattern.

    Oh man, if you figure out a good yarn to us for a sweater dress, I’d love to see the results!
