Knitting

FO Friday | Another Shade of Beige.

Otherwise known as Jessie’s Girl by Elizabeth Smith. This was super fun to knit; and should’ve also been super quick, but I had gauge issues and then sizing issues and ended up reworking the pattern to make it smaller.

Now super happy with the results!

I used Juniper Moon’s Zooey – a linen/cotton blend with thick and thin bits – and the texture adds just the right amount of interest to all that garter stitch.

I think Zooey is a great yarn choice for this pattern or the cardigan option (Jessie’s Girl Cardi). It comes in tons of colors – neutrals and brights – and it’s really reasonable.  For what might be the first time ever, I knit a sweater for less than I would’ve paid to buy it!

There’s been a lot of finishing going on at my kitchen counter this week. I can’t wait to share the next two pieces with you.

In the meantime – happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
