Yarn :: Cotton BIG Sport by idena
Pattern available here.
This sweater was a trans-atlantic collaboration between myself and Amy, the editor of Knitty. It's a simple raglan-sleeved pullover knit in the round with minimal finishing. The pattern features two options for stripes and two options for the neck shaping - one a boatneck, the other a mock turtleneck.

Yarn :: Rowan dk soft, colors 171 and 166.
This was a self-made pattern, but I didn't think far enough ahead to write it down! This yarn is a definite favorite for me and I'm thinking, since I have enough yarn left, of making it into a pullover.

Gift for Mom who picked out the pattern and the yarn at Earth Guild. The shirt is knit from the top down and the pattern was very well-written and easy to follow.

Yarn :: Gjestal Spineriís Nagano Superwash wool, which is a very lightweight soft yarn.
The color pattern on this vest was taken from Knitterís Magazine Fall 2000 on p. 108. I changed all the colors around and, after studying the patterns for several vests, set out. I love the way this came out and she says she does too. Itís made in thatís very lightweight and soft.

Yarn :: Lambís Pride Worsted, color :: Prairie Fire.
This pattern was inspired by a sweater I saw in a Norwegian women's magazine. I wrote out the pattern and it's available here. It features a 4-stitch cable on either side of the raglan decreases, purl rows at the hem and cuffs (rather than ribbing) and a mock turtleneck in k3, p3 ribbing.
