A New One on the Needles

The shawl completed, I wanted another "Relax in the Evening" project and I found a group on called Madelinetosh and a challenge called MadMay. It is a group that will knit sweaters in the month of May using Madelinetosh yarn. I happened to have yarn already purchased and needed a project so decided to join and give it a try. I finished up my swatch last night and the gauge is right on. The pattern is Brassica by Elizabeth Smith and I hope I haven't bit off more than I can chew. It has some patterning on the front and I've not done that before. The stitch is also new to me. Here's hoping for success.


  1. Your yarn color is lovely. It will be beautiful with the pattern of your sweater.

  2. what a beautiful sweater pattern - your's will be lovely! Have fun with it!
