Hourglass Sweater

October 31, 2009

I am a little late in jumping on the Hourglass bandwagon, but really, it has been in my queue for a long, long time. The new Rowan Lima appeared at my lys, one squeeze and I knew it had to be mine. How difficult could it be to find a pattern to compliment this heathery softy stuff? First I tried Seneca, but the delicate cables of Seneca looked clumsy in this yarn and so Lima was stuffed away in the basket. A few other projects were started and finished and Lima was still in the basket waiting for the perfect pattern. Hourglass came to mind, and thus a new project was born. A fast project. Love it. Love it. And may make it again. The fit is perfect and made no mods except to add a few inches in length.

The chunky key necklace is from The Powell Girls. They will be having a trunk show with us, Cover Story, for our Shop By Candlelight event.

The details: 8 skeins of Lima by Rowan in color Peru. Hourglass Sweater in XS from the Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. Knit in the round from the bottom up with bell sleeves and flattering wide neckline.

Raveled here.

  1. It looks lovely on you and a wise choice in yarn. I still haven't made an Hourglass yet despite having had the book for quite some time with the full intention of knitting one asap. Oh well, one day ;)

  2. It *is* perfect! I've been searching for an excuse to use this yarn too!

  3. Another Fabulous sweater! I simply must try that lovely yarn!
