Yarn Along: A Blossom Tee...


I cast on for a test knit of Katherine Johnson's Blossom Tee last Tuesday and have been really trying to knit it quickly!  It is such a great pattern.  I really appreciate how clearly it is written...  I am still very much a novice knitter and need things to be clear!  I chose to knit a size 8 for Sugar Plum and holding it up to her, the sweater seems very true to size.  Though the pattern is written for cotton, I decided to use some MadelineTosh in Logwood that I had in my stash so that it can be worn almost all year round (with a long sleeve tee shirt underneath in autumn and winter).  I'm hoping that I can finish the body of the sweater before Sunday so that my sweet Sugar Plum can try it on before she leaves for a week away at camp!

The pattern is fabulous and so is the yarn! I love that color. MadTosh is so nice to work with. Can't wait to see that finished.

Beautiful pattern, and I love the color! I love a knit that is truly versatile and can be worn more than one season!

It would also be so pretty and dressy with a long sleeved blouse under it! Something with a pretty collar. I love this sweater!

That is so true, Arielle! Our daughter is now getting too big for a lot of the clothes that they sell off the rack at our favorite stores, and so I'm really going to scour ebay for reasonably priced April Cornell things... I believe that they have nice blouses with collars.
