Thieves Like Us – Marie Marie
What better time to knit a really warm baby alpaca/silk sweater than during the warmest winter of my life? I started this sweater way back in August and after putting it aside a number of times throughout the autumn and winter, it is finally finished . . . just in time to be put away until next winter.
Backstory: This pattern comes from a Debbie Bliss book I bought in Seattle a couple years back. It was a memorable purchase because my mother, sister and I happened upon this yarn store where Debbie Bliss was visiting from the UK, showing her new pattern books and yarns. I am by no means a knitting expert and don’t know all of the names in the knitting world, but I do know Debbie Bliss. I almost always look at her yarns first when starting a project and have bought several books of hers, so this was pretty exciting, especially since we had no idea she was going to be there.
