Turtle Sweaters


I have been knitting for a little over three years now and I love Zimmerman. Her approach is empowering and her designs are genius.
Figuring out how to post photos took precious knitting time but at least now I can share what I made. For some reason I could only post four photos at a time so I will end up posting my projects separately.


Here are the turtle sweaters I made for my husband and sons this Christmas. They are all saddle shoulders a la Zimmerman and the turtle pattern is from Walker. I used Mountain Mohair from the Green Mountain Spinnery - the yarn is lovely.The pattern really show up in the black and white.

The pink sweater is inspired by the hoodie in Stitch and Bitchbut is Zimmerman's set in sleeve design. It is beautiful.I used Alchemy yarn.

  • Hope to see the pictures soon, I can vouch for the cuteness of the models!

  • No photos here either. I wonder if there is some problem with Blogger lately since there have been other posts that I can't see pictures either.
