I have now knit the Tea Leaves and it’s mini counterpart, the Tiny Tea Leaves, 3 times. I think I could whip one up from memory if pressed. I think I might be most happy with the last one I finished, my SweetGeorgia wonder. This sweater is knit from the top down (my current favorite construction) and once you get past the yoke it’s pretty simple (the yoke isn’t really that tricky either).
The best thing about this sweater? When Kynna tried it on for me, it looked great! Not every sweater I have created looked as good when finished as this one. It has just the right swing, it’s just the length I wanted (long for butt coverage), and it isn’t too loose or too tight in the arms. I could not be more pleased with the results if I tried. It took me 5 skeins of SweetGeorgia Superwash worsted and the colourway is Cypress. The colour is a wonderful mix of green and grey and I just love it too. Are there any more ways to say how much I love this project?! This sweater will be keeping Ursula (the shop mannequin) warm for a while and then it will gifted to a deserving recipient, and I can admire it all over again when it graces the shoulders of it’s intended wearer.
