i lived in handknits. what is nicer than going on a camping trip and staying warm as a result of your own two hands. really.
winner of most worn handknit:
any sweater that looks and fits equally well when pregnant, 5 days postpartum, and a back to normal body deserves an award. this sweater is a true fav.
the rhubarb and custard sweater/vest.
this is by far one of my favorite projects. it was quick and easy. super cute on. snuggly warm. etc. etc.
i sewed up the sides a bit, making it a bit more fitted. true love.
the unfinished levenwick.
i hastily sewed some buttons on this and threw it in my bag unblocked. it is so warm and comfy that i knew i needed to bring it. i just ordered some vintage glass buttons to go on this baby, and i will be extra extra pleased. i am going to move the buttons over a bit to make it a bit more fitted and help the collar stand up a bit better.
i obviously trust my handknits. did you know that i most definitely did not bring a single jacket to wear? i was supremely warm by way of my merino wool long sleeve undershirts, worn over my dress, and under a wool handknit.
