the idea is:
2 knits in the same color family.
1 yarn from stash, 1 yarn bought.
1 for warm weather, 1 for cold weather
the top is designed by heidi kirrmaier. the pattern is buttercup and available for free download on ravelry. it is knit in the round from the top down. if you are on ravelry, go and check out heidi's designs. they are all fantastic. i have 3 more in my queue.
the yarn: elsebeth lavold: hempathy - a new fav. of mine

my winter sweater is designed by suvi s. the pattern is: baby cables and big ones too. this pattern is also available on ravelry. and as my summer top, it is knit in the round from the top down. i left out the cables on the arm to keep it simple. i like the sweater, the only change i would make is to knit it in a different yarn, maybe a merino alpaca mix to get a more heathery garment.
