Purl Soho Pullover Sweater

Well, it's done and I've already worn it a couple of times. I'm wearing it right now actually, and I'm very happy with it. 

This first set of photos taken in front of my door were done before it was even washed, and you can see that it doesn't really require blocking – I'm guessing because it's knit in the round??

As I think I mentioned in my last post, this pattern was free when I signed up for their mailing list. They have some sewing implements on their site as well if knitting is't your thing. 

There is a small bit of shaping in the back courtesy of a couple of shortrows up at the neck. I'm not sure if I did it correctly, but it's black yarn and I can barley tell which is front and back as it is. 

This second series of photos was taken by my dad at my mom's art show.
Same camera as the first two photos in this post, but the lighting is much better. 
Dad somehow has the magic touch with photography.

Mom has been taking art classes through the University of 
Saskatchewan for the last couple of years.

This is her piece titled "Feeding Frenzy"

One more for the road. I haven't quite mastered the art of the time delay on my camera yet. Here you can see my temporary sewing space in the upstairs of the house. TV trays do not make a great sewing table. And you can also see progress on the princess Leia costume! 


  1. Ooh, I love the little speckles of color in an otherwise plain black sweater! So pretty! :-)

  2. Mmm, warm and comfy! I am starting to come out of my desire to sew nothing but fleece, but only barely! :)

    So cool to see your mom's art! :)

  3. That first thumbnail picture of yours ,in my blog roll, made it look like it was a book! like one of those Japanese sewing books.
    I like the sewing machine in the foreground, the spool photobombing the picture.
    How neat about your mom's artwork!
