Spectrum by Joji Locatelli

I spent the last month furiously sewing and knitting gifts.  Not so much that I got overwhelmed and regretful of my plans, but enough to keep me busy with less crafting time for myself.  I have photos of some of those creations, but first, I want to show my most recent knit for myself!

This is Spectrum by Joji Locatelli.  I cast this off the needles two days ago, blocked it that night, and wore it yesterday.  I love the bold chevron stripes on this, but I chose low contrast colors, hoping this would be good to wear on warmer days.  Since it was in the 80s yesterday, it passed the test.

 The yarn is Bernat Cotton-ish, which I got at JoAnn's.  I have so many wool shawl/scarfs, and I wanted to try one in a cotton blend.

Not a bad job by my 6-year-old photographer.  I have found that paying $1 per photo shoot greatly improves their conscientiousness in the matter.

I cast on my next project for myself right away - Jujuy from the same collection by Joji.  I really need to get back to the second sleeve for my other son's sweater.  Yep, I wrapped up a sweater with one sleeve for him.  Sorry, Baby, that's life with a mom-knitter.
