Sadly, for the past few months I haven’t been knitting.  However, a few weeks ago I decided to pick up a lovely sweater that I started knitting almost a year ago and had left hibernating in a lonely basket in the corner.  Once I picked it back up I remembered how excited I was to wear it when I started it last year and how I didn’t quite get it finished before it started to warm up enough that I knew it would be a while before it was sweater season again. It only took me a couple of evenings of knitting before my sweater was complete!  The sweater is Idlewood and you can find it on Ravelry.  I decided to knit my Idlewood using Cascade Eco Cloud Yarn.  I am in love with this yarn!  It has that really neat chainette construction that gives great stitch definition and knits up into a squishy fabric.  Eco Cloud is a blend of merino and alpaca and is processed naturally with no chemicals.  I will definitely use this yarn again.  It’s really soft and not itchy at all.  I am also really happy with the pattern.  Despite it taking me almost a year to finish, there is really very little knitting time involved.  It’s a quick top down sweater and is very well written.  Now that I’ve finished my sweater I have totally been bitten by the knitting bug again and am already half way done with another sweater!
