one of my favorite feelings in the cold is being able to bundle up in all hand knit garments. just in time for another round of cold weather, i finally got the chance to finish my kaari sweater over the weekend, and i'm in love. i started this cozy sweater back in june for my birthday, when my mother in law gave me the best gift ever of going to her local yarn shop and picking out the yarn, needles, and pattern i needed to get going on this long time favorite.
i decided to go with lamb's pride mohair blend for this sweater, as i'm not a fan of the price and feel of the berroco merino suggested. i loved working with this yarn and am so happy with the weight and softness of this sweater. i could easily see any worsted weight yarn being a good substitute, in fact, i'm tempted to use up the yards and yards of lion brand fishermen's in my collection and knit another, except this time in a seamless version! i'm sure i wouldn't be sorry to have multiples of this beautiful sweater in my closet.
