Vernal Knitting

002 (2)

Folks, it is the Vernal Equinox today, and the very first day of Spring! As my nieces for whom I’ve made these darling little spring tees ( and finished over a week ago, well ahead of deadline) can’t make this morning’s scheduled equinox photoshoot … er… ‘capturing of photographical images’ ….  we had to postpone, hopefully only until next weekend. But as I had my heart set on marking the day with a post of these tees (with or without their recipients) I thought I’d show ’em off hanging from my walking stick.

What you are seeing is Calidez redesigned !   That is, redesigned with ‘four seasons’ of necklines ~ and shown above is Spring in dark blue with half depth neckline, and Summer in mint green with full depth neckline. Besides having lower necklines, these Calidez pullovers are worked in Malabrigo “Rios”  which is worsted weight 100% superwash merino wool,  with short sleeve option, and having a very open seasonal fabric and possessing excellent elasticity. Here is the Spring neckline detail . . .

Next time you will see these tees on Miss Thirteen & Miss Sixteen, so watch this space~~ and Happy Spring to all!

    • Oh, I wanted to mention to you that had I not made the body of them so long (16 inches from underarm to hem) I would have gotten away (with the spring neckline) with only 2 skeins of Malabrigo. As it was I used a little bit of a 3rd skein. I think if you were interested in one for your daughter, ((wink wink)) you could easily with only 2 skeins. You have the update hopefully, so you can look it over. 🙂

  1. Ooooo, these are so gorgeous, Jen! I think I’d like to make one like the dark blue-green neckline for me! We’re in California next week…maybe we can finally meet up!

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
