Tea Leaves in Kid Classic

November 04, 2012





This is my mother's leopard belt circa 1960.  Love it!



I knit on several projects at the same time.  I don't think I have ADD so much as I am fickle about my knitting.  I get in a mood for texture, or color, or weight and then just pick up whatever seems to fit that mood of the moment.  That makes sense, right?  One of the nice things about starting a half dozen or so projects at once is that these half dozen or so projects all eventually get finished at about the same time.  So Bronze was finished last week, also made from Kid Classic, this week Tea Leaves, next week, who knows :^)

I wore this to church this morning.  I'm known as the lady who knits and I did get quite a lot of compliments.  I think Rowan Kid Classic is perfect for Tea Leaves, the lux yarn adds elegance to the pattern and makes it so cozy warm.  I love KC, it is a beautiful mix of lambswool and kid mohair, with good yardage and good hand.  It's also hard wearing, but I do hand wash it.

This is a popular pattern with so many knitters, I've made 4, two for my granddaughter and now 2 for me.  I cannot wait to make a teensy one for a baby.  I wrote on Ravelry about my slight modifications.  If you haven't made this sweater yet, you probably should, I know you'll love knitting it and wearing it!

Hope all is well with you!

  1. Very pretty Kristen! I love the stitch detail on the yoke. Your whole outfit is really cute, and the belt pulls it all together.
    It must be very gratifying to knit a garment, and get so much wear (and compliments) from it!
    Someday I will learn to knit!

    1. I never believe a knitter when she says she only has one WIP going at a time!

  4. It is stunning! I am known in several places (school where I subbed, church) as the lady who knits. I kind of like it.

    1. Exactly, being known as the lady who knits is better than many other things I could think of!

  5. Another beautiful sweater Kristen and I love that you still wear my leopard belt. I had a beautiful black knit dress and I wore that belt, a leopard hat and purse and boy did I feel smart..........
