a project for the mama: February "Lady" Sweater

After knitting for my babies, husband, siblings and friends, I finally took time to make something just for me: the adult version of Elizabeth Zimmerman's February Sweater.

I used just over 3 balls of Caron's Country merino blend in "foliage" and am so happy with how it knitted up! The merino has a silky sort of drape to it, and, while warm, is light enough to be perfect in an air conditioned building this summer.

I also really love the a-line swing shape that it has. It eases nicely over my belly (due date tomorrow!) and will still be cute come this fall and winter when I am getting my normal figure back. :)
I really love it!!!

This is gorgeous! Knitting is the one thing I do not do and this is making me reconsider. Love the lacy texture and spring green!
