Nightime Knitting Creation

How often do you lay in bed at night thinking about knitting? If you are a bit like me, the answer is "a lot!"

After a while, there is no point in fighting it, so I just turn on the old iPad and start putting ideas together. I came up with this new Fashion Inspiration board last night, around 1 a.m.

I can just see those pants (plaid is big this season) with the Winter Butterflies pullover. And those shoes! Too cute :)

The Brae Tweed yarn used is the loftiest and softest, totally the opposite of what tweed yarns often feel like. So it's a pleasure to knit with and to wear---both important features :)

The design uses raglan shaping, with a wide neck band. It's a bit like a baby circular yoke. No shaping intrudes in the pattern stitch panels, so you don't have to worry about keeping the pattern going while making decreases, which sometimes gives some knitters trouble. Because of that, it is a good choice if you want to try your hand at your first sweater with a bit of lace.
