Sweater Weather! Knit Agrotera

I made this sweater last spring, then put it away until the weather was colder again. Since we have almost a foot of snow on the ground, I think that qualifies as official winter weather. Long live sweater weather!

Pattern: Agrotera Pullover by Amanda Bell
Yarn: Juniper Moon Farm Sabine in Sungold

I bought this yarn at a local yarn store, Black Mountain Yarn Shop. It was on sale since the yarn has been discontinued, and I was a little hesitant about the color. Even though it was labeled as gold, I felt like it was a little too close to my pale skin tone.

In college my roommate had a shirt that was the same color as her skin, and every time I saw her from across the quad, I thought she was naked. I sure didn't want to recreate that shirt.

The color was a bit hard to photograph, but it's almost the same color as our Evil Kitty.

The sweater was super easy to knit, but I'm not 100% pleased with how the yarn feels. It's a little rough and scratchy, so I've mostly been wearing it over top of other things to add a layer between the sweater and my skin. It's still pretty, though, isn't it?

  1. I'm rendered almost speechless by the quality of your knitting ...
    And I LOVE your Evil Kitty ! Mine makes knitting (or crochet) difficult by insisting on sitting between my knees. He snores.
