FO: Grapevine


If ever there was a back burner knit, this was it. I started my Grapevine around this time last year, but kept shoving it aside for something newer and shinier. Knitting a few rows here and there has really paid off in the end. I love the simplicity of the sweater, which lends itself well to being dressed up with a skirt or more casually with jeans. The yarn is Hempathy which was a surprising pleasure to knit with and the resulting fabric is perfect for transitional weather knits.


Hooray for the first FO of the cleanup month. Thank you for the encouraging comments on my last WIP Wednesday post. Sometimes all it takes is a little gentle nudge to get those ends woven in. Check out FO Friday with TAMI'S AMIS for fabulous projects and inspiration. Hopefully, I'll be joining in on the Friday party for another few weeks!

  2. I love it, the subtle texture at the neckline is just perfect! I feel like I've picked up and petted a skein of Hempathy at some point, I'm glad it worked well for you.

  13. Ooh I love this. I agree with you, ideal for dressing up or down, bet you will get lots of wear out of it. I'm finding WIP Wednesday and FO Friday really useful to motivate me to get some projects finished too.

  16. i'm so glad you finished it! the design, color & workmanship are all lovely.

    sometimes the most wearable sweaters are the simplest (which can also mean less-than-exciting while on the needles).
