Hay Cove is the test knit I’m working on for Laura Aylor. The pattern isn’t available yet but I love this pattern. I know . . I say that about every one but this one I really love. This is probably the heaviest sweater I’ve made. The yarn is Cascade 220® (not superwash) and it’s much heavier than the superwash version and I love it. At first, it feels a little scratchy, especially compared to all the hand dyed yarns I’ve worked with, but after a while, it doesn’t feel scratchy and I’m so anxious to see how it’s going to feel once it’s soaked and blocked.
Here’s the sweater with everything done except the button bands and the collar, and of course, weaving in all the tails. Excuse the hair . . I’d been out working in the garden (but the truth is . . it probably always looks that ratty on the back side!).
The sweater isn’t too heavy and will be perfect for our winter. I’m thinking I might want to make one that’s more neutrals . . I’m thinking of a dark tan in place of the
brown deep gray (the color is Jet) and then some lighter tan and creams.
