I started working on a new project, the Curvo Sweater by Sachiko Burgin. The pattern calls for an Aran weight. I chose to use Cascade's Eco Cloud, a wonderful chainette yarn, which we carry in a range of undyed colors at The Noble Thread, 70% undyed Merino Wool / 30% undyed Baby Alpaca. The natural colors are so beautiful, and the alpaca, give the yarn a very subtle halo.
I fell in love with this pattern. The sweater is knit sideways, and I just love the the curved edges. The pattern is very easy to follow. If you have never knit one, this would be a very good first sweater. And the aran weight makes it a quick project!
