I recently purchased the book Knit, Swirl! by Sandy McIver and after looking through it I decided I wanted to knit one of the sweaters for my mom. I think she'll be able to pull off this style and after showing her the book, she was game. I've been searching for just the right yarns and I decided to use this as an opportunity to try out some yarns from KnitPicks and Webs that I have been curious about but never seen in person. I think. I'm going to end up doing a Sheer Beauty style where every other welts a lace weight sheer yarn so I bought a couple of colors of pretty Alpaca blend lace weight and I'm trying it with a a few other options to see what appeals to me and to Mom.
The first swatch is in process and I will update as I make progress.
