sunset highway







As you can see by that big grin on the kid’s face, we had a fabulous time at the seashore. Play Eat Repeat. I even squeezed some knitting in and managed to finish my Sunset Highway. I decided to knit short sleeves in keeping with the whole summertime casual easy breezy theme. I love that the yarn for this tee was all pulled from stash but the control freak knitter in me is not sure about the colors. It all looks okay together but I can’t help enviously drooling over all the pretty Sunsets on instagram and ravelry with their seemingly perfectly curated color choices (who knows maybe most were stash inspirations as well). Does that happen to you sometimes when trying to use your stash? But at least most of the envy is balanced out with the satisfaction of turning perfectly good yarn into a finished object.

  1. Maybe your issue is because it was a had to choose from a limited palette? Your free spirit was restrained in a way? I think it adorable! Great finish.

    1. That’s definitely what it was Chris. I’m so used to picking out the exact colors that I want. Trying to be good this year with the yarn budget.

  2. What a beautiful finish!! And the short sleeves are perfect. I love the contrast that the darker yoke provides as well.

    1. Thank you Vera! I am happy that I went with short sleeves as well, otherwise who knows when this sweater would have been finished :)
