I wanted a new ski sweater. I made a bottom up circle yoke sweater ala Elizabeth Zimmerman. I used some Noro Silk Garden I got from a friend for Christmas and the chart for Amy King's Fake Isle Hat. The black is Paton's Classic Merino.
The most surprising thing about this sweater is its amazing fit. I knit it exactly to my measurements without any bust or waist shaping. It fits great over my snow bibs and a thermal, but drapes in a lovely and flattering way next to the skin.
I'd show you some action shots, but I wore this sweater skiing on Wing Ski Day. I decided to wear it under my coat since it was zero degrees outside. Bad idea. There is a reason Americans call the sweat-ers. I actually sweat through my coat from skiing so hard. Then I froze all the way home on the bus. There is a reason they are called apres ski wear. You're supposed to put them on afterwards. Anyway, it's getting a much needed bath.
I love this sweater. It's my favorite thing I've knit in years.
