Goddess Knitters

...smitten...

I have a new love in my life. It's not what you think. It's warm and welcoming, fun and stylish, and I don't think I can limit myself to just one.



I give you......the olympic lady.......




I am not kidding when I say that this sweater is a little like crack. The yarn's yumminess (is that a real word?) goes without saying...but I'll say it anyway.
STR Heavyweight in the colors Valkyrie and Obsidian. Love, love, love how these two colors play with each other. They are so beautiful!

The other star of the this project is the pattern. February Lady from Flint Knits is a dream come true! So easy to knit and the fit is awesome! I first learned of this amazing pattern from one of my bff's irishgirlieknits. She dangled this beauty in front of me and I was hooked!

So get out there, download the pattern, pick out your yarn and get 'er done. Let me see your rockin' ladies!!! You won't be sorry.

    It's so so lovely! Are you going to share how you worked the two colorways? Please? Mine has been in progress for a while, but you've inspired me to get moving.

    Every time I see this pattern, I try to Q it again. Maybe someday I'll have time to make it. Peg
