Carla's StasisThis awesome sweater was knit by Carla, who graciously let me take pictures.  We spent a lot of time picking out the colours and I think a pat on the back is in order.  This is the Madelinetosh Merino Light in colours Antique Lace and Pop Rocks.

Carla's StasisThe pattern is Stasis by Brooklyn Tweed.

It’s a good time to start making your spring sweater in this light weight yarn! Spring will come one day!

Other Knit Cafe projects made with the Merino Light are the Big Wrap………………………………………….. and the Soho Scarf

So many possibilities…

  1. Thanks, Kristin, that’s so lovely of you. The Stasis sweater is officially blocking as I write this – Can’t wait to start wearing it! Thanks for all your colour selection help, I would have been buried in colours for years without you 😉
