I went for a Swirl. A Swirl for me!
Between knitting Swirl samples for Sandra and various other jobs, I managed to carve out enough knitting time to make my very own Swirl.
Her name is Tangerine Rose and, true to form, I went slightly off-book.
I decided that I wanted a plain, unembellished jacket, no bells, whistles or eyelets. However, I loved the shape and proportion of the Tangerine Rose in the book: a shorter, fitted, lovely, swingy silky extravaganza. So I omitted the eyelet and condo rounds and didn't bother making the corsage.
And I found the perfect yarn sub: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Luscious Single Silk in Cozy Fierce and Dirty Orange. I love to say that name as much as I liked knitting with it. And it's divine.
Here she is!
It's true sweater love.
