FO: February Lady Sweater

Pattern: February Lady Sweater by flintknits
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Heavyweight in Blue Moonstone, 2 skeins from The Fold
Needles: US7
Notions: Perfect buttons from Knitty City
Mods: Used sock yarn instead of Worsted, though this is the Heavyweight sock yarn. And I decreased one repeat of the lace out of each arm to make them snugger (and save on yarn), then knit the cuffs back and forth.

What fun! I've made a bunch of February Baby Sweaters, so it was a no-brainer to knit this one up (along with everyone else). I'm not thrilled with my buttonholes, but I think that's my only problem with the sweater. It should be a useful knit to have this winter, since it's wooly yet lacey, and our apartment tends to be overheated.

In more exciting news than an FO, I'm getting married tomorrow!


  1. Very pretty sweater! I love the idea of using a heavyweight sock yarn.

    And, congratulations on your wedding!!

  2. Congratulations on the sweater and the wedding! (Our anniversary is the 28th.)

    Now I think I'm the only one left who hasn't knit this sweater. Maybe after all the Christmas gifts are finished ...

  3. Congratulations on your wedding... And your sweater is beautiful!!

  4. The other Annie here....congratulations!
