Another New Project!

In addition to the shawl I showed you yesterday, I also cast on for a new fingering weight pullover.  This is the beginning of Eyre, knit in Dream in Color Smooshy With Cashmere in Magic Orchid.  The color is kind of a dark, smoky red violet.  You begin with the back lace section and work your way towards plain stockinette.  This way of working fits me well as I can get the more complex parts finished when the project is new and exciting and I have momentum behind me.  I think that's why I also like top down sweaters more than bottom up.

The lace pattern is worked on both right side and wrong side rows (no resting purl rows), but it's very intuitive and easy to read, so even working on the wrong side isn't difficult.  I really love the design of this pullover with the simple stockinette front and sleeves and the lace back - like a little surprise!  I also think it will look cute with skinny jeans and ballet flats which is what I tend to live in.
