Lauren

I am back! Sooner than I thought. Just a minor problem with the computer.
Anyway, I finished Lauren last weekend. I have had this yarn in my stash for a long time now, and was waiting for the perfect pattern. After taking sometime to look on Ravelry for a few hours one night (such a luxury) I found this pattern, and fell in love. I feel like between Flickr, my blog, Ravelry, and Facebook, I never really take the time to spend more than a little bit of time on each. It was so much to sit and really explore on Ravelry.


This is a great cable pattern. Nothing too complicated. I love the offset buttons. I think this is the first blue sweater I have ever owned. I never thought I looked good in blue, but decided I loved the color so much, I didn't really care.


The Details:
Pattern: Lauren, by Weaver Knits
Yarn: Cascade Heathers 220, five hanks
Size: 36
No alterations here. I love the pattern. One of my favorites so far. I can see my self making one in green and black too.

I am officially obsessed with this sweater. I actually got out my needles the other evening and finished/fixed the last of my projects. Now I'm ready to start something new! This would be perfect! Believe it or not, I've never knitted something for myself!

APA said...

Oh, yes. It's VERY beautiful. I love the offset buttons, too. And the blue definitely looks good on you. Goes so well with the jeans, too.

Good it was nothing too serious with your computer. It is nice to have time away, but with all there is to see, do and learn on the net, well, it's a wonderful tool and place to mingle. Glad you're here. Enjoy. :)

Your sweater is absolutely beautiful! And you should definitely wear blue more often. I love the offset button also. You always amaze me!

Renee said...

I absolutely love this sweater and especially the blue colour. It looks great on you and so nice with jeans. Great buttons too!
Your knits are are always lovely and I enjoy seeing them. Gets me inspired to spend more time knitting too!!

Stephanie said...

As always, it looks fabulous! I need a new knitting project - went to the store today to pick up yarn for Francis Revisited, but alas, they didn't have a great selection. Guess I'll have to wait a few more days until the yarn comes in the mail!

Love the cable and offset buttons - very stylish! Such a pretty shade of blue.

I absolutely love this sweater. Would you ever consider making one and selling it-say to me?!? I'm a quilter-not a knitter. I seriously wish I was, but I just can't get the hang of it.

Jessica said...

I love your sweater. I'm going to have to search it out on ravelry and then take a deep breath and perhaps start out on my first sweater!

Shannon said...

Gorgeous! I adore the color.

Jan said...

The sweater is beautiful - I'm not a blue person either. Green is my color. The blue is really pretty.

Katie Jean said...

that is freakin gorgeous. I can't believe how fast you whip up these things!!! I have major sweater envy now. This one might be one of my favorites!

Rachel Bingham said...

Katie, Of course you look good in Blue! You look good in every color. I'm not just saying that either:)

beki said...

It's gorgeous, and yes, you look fabulous in blue!

I've been afraid of cables (due to the unknown factor), but I may give this one a try :)

elliebelle said...

This is gorgeous! You are the fastest knitter alive!!!!

Steph said...

It's very lovely! The color is great.

Meagan said...

I. Cannot. Believe. It. I love the color-the buttons, the cables-and it is suh flattering-great job! I am thinking of making some little gingerbread houses for your babes to decorate. When would be a good day & time to do that in the next couple of weeks? I can bring them to you and the babes can play, not sure of your nap times... Sundays Chris can come too and oversee Ava, she may be a bit too small for such activities...Though Anna was not much older that year we decorated a house?!?

crochetgurl said...

Wow, another gorgeous FO! I love the asymmetrical look. It's so chic and hip! How long did it take you to knit?

amandajean said...

hooli said...

The craftsmanship alone is amazing. :)

I love, love, love this sweater. Since I have zero skills at knitting or sewing I will have to admire it on you. The blue is gorgeous! I am a wee bit jealous...can you tell?

Marcia said...

Amazing! You have great taste in the sweaters you chose. Are you teaching those kids of yours to knit yet?

Nora said...
