Modification Monday: Nightingale


Original Pattern: Nightingale

Knitter Extraordinaire: Momo (Rav ID)

Mods: Turned a beautiful colourwork sock pattern into a stunning colourwork cardigan- with steeks! Details are on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: You know, a whole bunch of you sent me an email after this project hit ravelry and suggested it for Mod Mondays- because it's that amazing. I mean, she turned socks into a sweater- that's pretty darn amazing. Momo has a lot of gorgeous colourwork projects, but this really is a knockout- the colour combo is beautiful, the charted design is stunning, and it looks like it fits perfectly. It is the perfect storm of awesome project mods!! I urge you to check out the rest of her projects- Mom's sense of colour and desire to modify patterns is nothing short of amazing.

I love Morag's Nightingale pattern and when I saw this I gasped in awe, Momo has such a discriminating sense of style and pro workmanship, all her projects are terrific, but I adore her colourwork, amazing considering her rav profile states she's only been knitting for three years, go Momo!

Wow! This is stunning! I love the birds and would've never thought that they come from a sock! pattern. So cool! And reading that she has only been knitting for three years makes me wonder if I should tackle new challenges.

Too bad I really hate intarsia or I would be all over this! But just looking at it makes me tired.
