Not Such A Good Summer Knit

Every year I attempt to make (at least) two gifts for members of the family. In addition to this, I have been attempting to knit a sweater for each family member (that I think would wear one). Last year I made my brother a vest and my niece a pullover. This year I have decided to make a sweater for my sister K’s husband, M.

Last year I conferred with sisK and she checked with M. He signed off on EZ’s simple-but-classic seamless hybrid (see Brooklyn Tweed Jared’s version here). It’s a sweater that seems to look good on everyone. I think it will look great on him.

I’m using Cascade 220 in midnight heather — plus a bit of Dale Hauk there in the secret contrast inner hem — and I would have knit a lot more on it during this past long weekend had it not been too damn hot to hold a wool sweater in my lap. Still, I think I should be able to get it done for the winter holidays.

    I adore my seamless hybrid. It’s so comfy! And just when you think you can’t take any more, you get to the shoulders and the hybrid-ness of it all and it’s so fascinating to see it all come together that you’re a little sad that it’s over. Is there anything that woman couldn’t do?
