Jeanne's Desiree in Cassis


Needing a diversion from some socks I am designing, I chose 'Desiree' by French Girl in Rowan Big Wool. It is so much fun doing this quick knit beautiful sweater. The pattern is super easy to follow and the yarn is so soft, with rich strong colors. I chose the color Cassis, which is a strong rich fuchsia. The cuffs are knit first and then put on waste yarn to hold the stitches while the body is knit. When my husband saw me knitting it he commented on the fact that the wool was such big wool! I just laughed since he didn't know that was the yarns name, but he had clearly seen what the yarn makers had seen in the yarn too. It is so yummy that I can't wait to wear it.
