Vita de Vie is finished and I love it!

Vita de Vie is finished and I love it!

I’m really thrilled with how it turned out – the way the Beaverslide yarn softens and relaxes and blooms, following a wet blocking, is just magical. And the sweater itself is light as a feather!

Shoulder detail

I’m really delighted with the fit, and I love the way the lace looks over the shoulders. I would never have thought to design a sweater with this kind of construction (and I can’t say that I really enjoyed all of the finishing work this required) but the result is pretty fantastic!

I’m really delighted with how light and flowy it came out, too. In the past, all of my sweaters have been worsted or aran weight, but in the last year or so, I’ve knit several sweaters in sport weight, and I quite like them, especially in the Spring when it’s definitely still sweater weather here, but not necessarily aran-weight sweater weather.

I wish I could take slightly more interesting finished sweater photos with my camera, but I’m limited in terms of what I can do with a 12-second self-timer! My old camera remotes don’t work with my current camera (an Olympus PEN E-PL2) and I’m not sure what sort of remote WILL work with it, but if anyone has advice, I’m all ears!

Isn’t that lace over the shoulder so pretty?

And I’ve come around to liking that soft V-neck! Very very happy with my new sweater – just in time for the weather to become decidedly NOT sweater-friendly!
