It’s been a minute since I have been able to say this, but, guys, I have a new pattern for you!!
Introducing, the Hurricane Ridge Pullover!It’s a super-cozy, extra-comfy, everyday sweater in the softest superwash wool you’ve ever seen.I love this sweater, for real. I’ve got one in a gorgeous deep red that is just a delight to wear. It’s made with super-soft Provincial Tweed (which, despite my turbulent relationship with my last Provincial Tweed project, I love dearly). It’s soft and warm, and you’ll want to wear it every day.The Hurricane Ridge Pullover is a super simple knit. It’s worked seamlessly from the bottom up and features an asymmetrical split hem, raglan sleeves and a generous shawl collar (perfect for staying warm on cold hikes through the woods).
(And I know, this post is kind of supposed to be a self-promotion post, but, dang if Knit Picks didn’t hit it out of the park on this collection. It’s as if they designed a whole book of patterns just for me- so much tweed, so much texture, and so many cozy sweaters! Definitely check it out.)
Phew! I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Sequim, a little coastal town on the Olympic Peninsula. It’s pronounced “Squim” (rhymes with “him) it’s as fun to say as it is to visit! We spent 4 days hiking on Hurricane Ridge, tide pooling on Rialto Beach, and eating delicious local seafood. Ollie spent his days barking at seagulls, running after seagulls, and trying to eat seagull poop.And what else did I do? Oh, right… knitting.
Lots of knitting!
In fact, between all time driving between natural wonders, and mornings watching flocks of birds fly up and down the beach, I made it three-quarters through a pair of lovely lace-y socks! (A Christmas present for a lucky someone!)
After all that relaxation, I’m ready for another vacation!
