New Pretty Lady

I think I have mentioned before how much I love Elizabeth Zimmermann.

Well let me tell you again….I LOVE EZ!!
Her design, or undesign, is perfect in form. Simple and clean.

One of my favorite patterns of hers is the February sweater from The Knitter’s Almanac.

For the past year or so I have been talking about the idea of just upping the size to a women’s size for myself. Well, if you wait long enough it happens without you having to lift a finger!

Behold, the February Lady Sweater by Pamela Wynne.

Here is my start.

And a closeup of the buttons,

It’s a tortoise shell button with an inlay of mother of pearl. Very pretty, indeed!

It makes me very, very happy.

I am still plugging along on the gift sweater that I am not talking about ;o)

And, big surprise, the Picnic Blanket is finished!
A whole post all of it’s own is in order for that one!
