  • Love it! I’m going to check out the pattern on Ravelry.

  • You know the most interesting people….

  • I love it. I have some light fingering just waiting for one of these patterns. Will gladly take your advice as to which to try first. Perfect snowbound knitting I think.

    Also, will make a note to look for Allison’s album, thanks for that tip too!

  • I also cannot do repeats. Knitting. Traveling to the same place more than once. Friends’ x-boyfriends. Just can’t.

  • True confessions: I am one of the would be thieves, this very evening…

  • I would be trying to steal it, too xxx.

  • Jeez. I may have to take the Boxy plunge. If it’s drapey enough even in sportweight . . . on the other hand, I am short and slight. Would hate to look like a hassock with an afghan thrown over it.

  • great sweater! but please do tell more about the quilt in the middle picture xx

  • Another hit, Kay! I especially love the “unintended dyelot striping”. You are an inspiration to me in my knitting life.

    LoveDiane

  • I love that sweater, and I’m so glad to see it modeled. I admit that I was initially put off by the name, but it’s adorable. On another note, you may be interested to know that Allison’s sister Shelby has a new album coming out in May, and it’s GREAT. Probably the best thing she’s done musically since “I Am Shelby Lynne.”

  • Hat is that blanket in the backgound? Is it a quilt or Blankie? I love it. I’m doing Bunch a Squares now, but like this one too.

  • LOVE. Also the Quilt…

  • Gotta admit, I don’t like it. I don’t think it’s flattering on the model, or laid out flat. Having lived through the 80’s and early 90’s with the boxy sweaters everywhere, I haven’t been able to appreciate them since. Lots of knitting and lots of fabric.

  • It’s like a Piko top, big, loose, comfy and flattering.

  • Gorgeous! Don’t we get to see it on you? (I just bought a boatload of sportweight, and I’m looking for something like this, but willowy, I’m not.)

  • Ooooh. Now it needs some time in the indigo vat.

  • Cool on your friend. But not a sweater for those of us (ahem) with an overabundance of curves. We’d look like tarp-covered heavy equipment.

    • No! I’ve tried it on myself and other bodies and it looks good on us all. Will try to do a fashion show.

  • So in one of the “found object” pics, do we see “the” 8-in-one sweater? Whichever sweater it may be, it’s looking good!

    LoveDiane

  • Kay, you have inspired me to knit something with the same silhouette – (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/easy-going-2). As a bonus – approved by my fashionista son. 🙂

    In unrelated news, did you see where Rowan dug up old photos of Eddie Redmayne (Talk about the ultimate appropriate last name!) modeling Denim sweaters? http://www.buzzfeed.com/alannaokun/eddie-redmayne-once-modeled-for-a-knitting-book#.yukW5qya6

    Thanks again for the inspiration!

  • Just commenting on the laugh out loud ‘vet face’ in your instagrammies. Pucker up! Especially great shots today across the board. Thx.
