Vanilla

A plain white sweater earns the title. Pattern is Attitude, but knit with very little attitude. Except on my part. Yarn is Lorna’s Laces shepherd sock.

When I soaked this sweater, it grew 3 sizes. I became very nervous that I’d have to reknit it completely. I didn’t want to! So I decided I’d have nothing to lose by throwing it in the dryer, and lo and behold it worked! It looks better now than it did when it came off the needles. I am very impressed with this superwash.

While the color of the sweater did not thrill me one bit, I must say the sweater itself is very nice. I might someday be interested in knitting it in a color for me.

  1. Lorna’s Laces is my favorite superwash, hands-down, as my Shepherd Sock collection will attest. Very cute sweater! I like the texturing between the knit/purl rows. It makes it look handmade (not homemade. that would be an insult.)!

  2. Thank you! I must say, I’d certainly use the Lorna’s Laces again, especially since they have good solid colors for larger projects like this!
