Silas sweater…

IMG_6722It is official! I love, and highly recommend this sweater pattern.


Okay having such a handsome model doesn’t hurt either 😉

I made this sweater over the summer with plans for it to be a Christmas gift. However we made a last minute decision to head south and visit family for the holidays. Which meant that some of the planned Christmas gifts were held over for birthdays. So here is the birthday boy modeling his Silas sweater. Probably won’t be able to wear it long now, but I can always put it in storage for the next little man in line.

Here are the other post related to this project.

Silas Sweater photo update


Unfortunately, the photo colors off because of the lighting.

I have been working on the Silas sweater. I have the back finished, and I am currently working on the front piece. Picture below…

IMG_0111I love the way this is knitting up. It is soft, and I love the texture the Ridge pattern adds. Also the sizing seems to be right on so far. I am currently working on the size 6.

Sweater Heaven…

I love cool weather! Fall, Winter and early Spring are my favorite times of the year. Simply because it means I can wear sweaters. I can be cozy, and not suffering heat stroke. 🙂

So,  in my quest to instill my love of sweaters, and sweater weather to my children. I have been searching for the perfect yarn, and sweater pattern. I might have found it!  The Silas sweater! I found it listed on Ravelry!

I am using Cascade 220 Aran Yarn! I love that this soft, warm, wool that can be machine washed! Seeing as this is the first time using this yarn for this pattern the true test will actually be washing the finished product.

Tonight I  finished the back. It is currently tucked safely away, after bath and blocking, and is awaiting the other pieces.

Here is a sneak peek…
