So as you know, it's taken me a while to sit down and finally blog again. Getting my apologies post out first I thought I'd follow it with a new pattern! My color block drop should sweater, Kendi!
From inspiration, to color choices, and finally knitting, I truly enjoyed each piece of this sweater. And who knew we'd have one of the snowiest winters in New England so she's gotten lots of wear. Thrown over a t-shirt and jeans and it's the perfect go-to for these blizzardy days.
I actually had this sweater done in time to wear it at Rheinbeck, which is evidenced here!
I must thank my friend, Thea for helping me with my photoshoot! When you put us together, you never know what kind of hilarity ensues. We had fun taking some glamour shots of which you can find more on her blog.
