Pattern: Greensleeves from Sublime

Yarn: Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran #19 Sprout (7 balls), #108 Artichoke (7 balls)

Comments: Very straighforward pattern, suitable for a beginner sweater knitter. The most difficult aspect was lining up the stripes when seaming. The yarn is delish. Adding it to my favorite yarn list. Not one knot in 14 balls! Waaaay better track record than Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.

Pattern: Cuddle from Louisa Harding's book Kindred

Yarn: Louisa Harding Kashmir Baby #6, 3 balls

Comments: Made this sweater to give to one of my husband's employees (sex of baby as yet undetermined). Very simple pattern.

Picture me standing on the mountain top (Sound of Music style) and singing the praises of this yarn. It...Is...AMAZING!! It comes in sport (baby), dk, and aran weights. Therefore you can easily find a pattern to use it in. No excuses!!
