Acorn Trail

Hello Chickadees!

I'm here to share the first finished project of 2015- my Acorn Trail sweater!

This is Amy Herzog's Acorn Trail pattern. This pattern has been on my list of favourites on Ravelry for quite a while. I finally decided to take the plunge and start it, and I'm so glad that I did! It was my first Amy Herzog pattern, and I really love the way it was written. It was really easy to follow the pattern, and everything went together perfectly.

 I knit this using Knit Picks City Tweed, which is a merino/alpaca blend. It is so snuggly and warm! I am usually freezing, and this kept me warm the entire time during the shoot. The cables on this are my favourite part. I have grown to love knitting cables, because it gives me something to look forward to while I'm knitting each row. 

This is my very favourite handknit project so far. I love the yarn/pattern pairing! I've worn it every day since i finished it, because it's just so cozy!

More sewing projects are coming soon, I promise! It's just been very cold and dark and wet, making it rather hard to get decent blog photos!

I'll leave you with this picture of me getting excited about ducks.

What are you guys working on right now?
