Yes, I sure did!


I'm always sooo bummed out when yarn people discontinue a great yarn, especially the tweeds.
Rowan is good for that. So many of their great tweeds are kaput. It's getting harder and harder
to find Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweeds, too. Darn it.

How did I miss this for three days, it's really gorgeous! May be one of my favorites that you have knit as I love the color and the pockets, bottom band, and yoke's direction.

If I do make it up there later this summer, maybe you and I can sit down and knit some socks? Wouldn't you LOVE to have socks to coordinate with your sweaters?

It almost looks like these things we used to wear when I was in high school. We called them Baja's. But essentially they were tweed pull-over hoodies.

I've really been loving hoodies this year! So handy to have a "hat" to grab! Just flip it up, and it's an instant hat and scarf rolled into one!

The Kerrera is really a nicely constructed jacket! There were several new elements that I had never used before! The sleeves for instance! Knitting them onto the body using short rows! That was so much fun!

Also, the pocket application! Brilliant! Loved it, and will incorporate that particular app again on other sweaters! By simply changing the top border, but keeping it slanted with the use of short rows, you could create a good look for almost any sweater!

Plus, finally, the hood! I really appreciated the construction of this hood. The shaping was brilliant as well! It fits the head so nicely!

And of course, the double garter stitch borders and bands! Even though I failed at this, I certainly love it! It is an elegant, sturdy border!

Red or purple would be gorgeous! Rav has lots of "projects" to look at! People did all kinds of colors! It's an all around great pattern!
