Pumpkin Wool and Honey Sweater - Andrea Mowry WIP Progress 1

Have you seen Andrea Mowry’s Wool and Honey sweater pattern?? I fell in love with it the moment I laid eyes on it. I purchased the pattern the day it was released and that is something I NEVER do. Not because I don’t want to buy all of the amazing patterns that indie designers are releasing, but because I don’t usually have lots of extra room in my budget for knitting patterns that I may or may not use.

But for the Wool and Honey, I made an exception. I knew that I would be knitting it ASAP and here we are! I have cast on and made good headway into the yoke. And I LOVE it. The stitch pattern is so different but still simple enough that my brain cells aren’t freaking out every time I work on it.

I’m knitting it out of my official Thanksgiving 2018 colorway: Pumpkin Pie. Pre-orders will be available sometime in the next couple of weeks and I wanted to have a sample knit so you all could see how the yarn looks when it is made into something.

I am a very bad knitter. I hate alternating skeins. Like so much. So I’m not. 😱 Yes, you heard me correctly, I’m not alternating my skeins of yarn. I have a couple of reasons for this: 1. I dyed the yarn so I have a general idea of how it will look knit and 2. I don’t mind small sections of pooling. They don’t bother me enough to deal with the hassle of swapping between skeins every two or so row. 😀
