valentine's is just around the corner

And I am ready!


Or at least my sweater is.


Proudly present my Valentine's Cassidy:

Yes!
My first sweater of the year. Madelinetosh Tosk DK. Six skein. Colorway is Tart. On size 8 needles. The pattern is Chic Knits Cassidy. It is a hoodie but I didn't have enough yarn so I knitted a collar instead. I took the collar pattern from another Chic Knits pattern -- Twist Cardigan. It matches perfectly and I am very happy with it.

I like Tosh DK a lot. It was originally classified as a worsted weight yarn and I knitted it as such. It felt a little loose. I am glad it got reclassified as a DK. I think it knits up much better as a light worsted/DK at 5 -5.5 stitches per inch.

Now I am inspired to finish my Twist, which has been languishing in hybernation for over a year.
