Tea with Jam and Bread

January 13, 2013

The most cutest sweatshirt ever!  The pattern, Tea with Bread and Jam by Heidi Kirrmaier is a perfectly simple and functional sweater design.  I've seen this pattern knitted more form fitting, which is beautiful, but for mine I wanted more of a comfy, roomy sweatshirt style.  I love it.  Yarn is Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter, an American grown and milled worsted weight wool.  It has a lovely and bouncy feel when knitting except there was a lot of vegetable matter in the yarn, and it was slow going picking it out as I went along.  It's a bit scratchy so probably best suited for outerware, but with a tee underneath the feel of the sweater is perfect.  My colors are Soot, Sweatshirt and Camper.  Love the tiny pockets, great place for the pedometer. Also, the pattern is written for sizes for children, women and men.  Very handy pattern to have in the library!  My Ravelry link here.



Lots of fun knits on the needles right now and most are tiny needle projects so they are taking some time.  One is using the new Kidsilk Haze Glamour and another using a fingering weight Isager Highland.  Still, I hope I'll have another finished piece to share soon.  Have a great week.

xoxo Kristen
