What's This? A Sweater?

Did you think I had forgotten how to knit sweaters? Prior to 2004 (my entrance into knitting blogs and computer enhanced knitting), I had been mostly knitting sweaters - LOTS of sweaters with occasional hats/mittens thrown in - I seem to have pretty much dropped sweaters in lieu of socks over the past few years. I usually have a sweater on my needles, but it just sits in a corner forgotten most of the time. This simple raglan v-neck was started in March 2009 - It is the one I spilled a whole cup of coffee on in Virginia last year, without any lasting damage - It is a survivor!

Cotton/Angora V-neck

I love top-down raglan construction worked in the round - so easy to get a good fit and very little finish work. This pullover fits to perfection and soft....oh so soft made from cotton and angora. Can you see the angora halo?

Cotton/Angora V-neck

In the old days, I made complicated sweaters with cables/colorwork/lace, but realized that what I WEAR are simple plain sweaters - exactly like this one.
