February lady sweater

Have you seen the February Lady sweater? You can see it on this blog. I love this pattern. You can download the free pattern from here. We all enjoy those free deals!

I had this wonderful yarn in a deep purple that would work really well with it. The yarn is from my recycled yarn stash. It used to be an tired looking turtleneck that had no shape to it. I took it all apart, washed the yarn and wound it up in center pull balls.

The lace pattern is quite simple and really pretty.
It is knitted in one piece, so no side seams and no seams for the sleeves. Now that's easy and quick! I found these great buttons in my stash that match almost perfectly.

Here is the finished sweater...forgive me for the dark was taken at night!

All in all, a good project.
Don't forget to check my etsy shop for some of that wonderful recycled yarns. They are of high quality, beautiful and don't cost an arm and a leg!

New beginning!

Well, I have decided to take the plunge and commit to blogging about my love of yarn and life in the country.
