I am nuts with possum yarn

I blogged about that feeling of the perfect sweater..

Well, here it is.

It’s everything to wish for: warm, soft, neutral, pretty. And it’s got some sweet details.

Notice those shoulders? That’s a saddle shoulder construction, where stitches are picked up at the front and back of the shoulder, and made to pleats at the front. Also, there are pleats all along the side of the body.

The pattern is Mandel by fallmasche. She doesn’t have a home page, but her designs are amazing.

We had fun taking photos.

And I love the yarn, the possum makes it soooo soft and gives it a sweet halo.

I’m not done knitting with this.

And I actually have pretty much yarn left, so there is enough for a hat or perhaps even a pair of gloves.

And – if you want to know more, you can take a look at my Rav project page.
