Viral Knitting

There’s a new sweater pattern that’s getting a lot of attention on Ravelry. It’s called the February Lady Sweater by Pamela Wynne, and it’s a grown-up adaptation of the February Baby Sweater from Elizabeth Zimmerman’s classic book, Knitter’s Almanac. Cute!

I put it in my Ravelry queue as a joke, just to see if it would spread there. Yup. Then I heard that Twisted, my favorite LYS, is hosting a KAL (knitalong). And then they decided to have an anniversary sale to celebrate their first year in business. How could I resist all that?

I couldn’t. Last night I bought Louet Riverstone Worsted in a gorgeous color, French Blue.

I think it will be great with jeans. Twisted’s KAL begins on July 11, but I’ll need to swatch before then. For now, I’m reading Ravelry’s February Lady KAL group forum for tips and ideas.

Side note: Emily bought some of my patterns, so they’re available at Twisted, as well as here on my blog. They’re for my felted slip stitch tote,

More pattern sales mean more yarn for me. Do you feel like an enabler? ;-)

  1. Wowzers. I am out of the loop and had not seen that sweater, but I like it. A lot. Queued!

  2. I have been eying your socks and the felted tote too. Just need a little spending money before I become an enabler, lol

  3. I love that blue, and your patterns. I still have to knit the Baby Surprise Jacket before I do any adaptations. It is about 4th in my Rav queue but I keep adding patterns above it.

  4. That yarn looks delicious!!!! Such a pretty colour too :) Your patterns are beautiful too!

  5. I’ve looked at February Lady sweater dozens of times to try to convince myself I could wear it. Sadly, I think it would look a bit ‘bed jacket’ on me. Think I’ll have to make do with knitting a baby version.

  6. It seems like I see the February Lady Sweater everywhere, I must be the only person who isn’t knitting it. It’s really cute. Wonder if it’s easy to knit.

  7. Great job on the Feb. lady sweater. I love the green!

  8. Oops, should have read your entire post before commenting! I think the the Feb lady sweater in blue will be stunning. I’m thinking about knitting this one too, maybe in green, though, like in the photo.
