FO: Rosewater Pullover


I recently finished this sweater, which was part of a Knitalong for the Tanis Fiber Arts Ravelry group. I love how it turned out!


Pattern: Clear Creek Pullover 

Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label in Hand Dyed One of a Kind skeins (2)


I made some modifications, most notably adding faux seams, which is where I moved the beginning of the round, so that I could easily conceal the alternating of the two yarns I was using. They were both hand dyed one of a kind, and although similar, they were quite different. Here's a shot of the two skeins when this was still a work in progress:
Oh, indoor nighttime photography! It just never looks as good as natural light. Never. 

See how one is more rosy, and one is more blonde? That blonde one looks like a mess because it was a center pull skein that had since collapsed in on itself. It's not as tangled as it looks, I promise.

Even though it's really cold out, I love, love, LOVE the light you get for photos when there is snow on the ground. The white of the snow reflect the light perfectly, it's like nature's photoshop for your skin!

Beautiful! The yarn and colors are spot-on for the pullover design.

I love the faux seams, perfect for hiding where you switched skeins and the look is really sharp too. Great FO, the neckline is very pretty! SImple, with just the right amount of detail.

You look so beautiful... I don't know if it's the colour of the yarn, the jumper, the snow, happiness or just pure genetics... but it doesn't really matter anyway!

On the sweater I totally like the edgings!!!
