So here goes.
The new All Season's Cotton book is full of wearable sweaters. Nobody noticed this sweater until one got sent to the shop.
Maybe it's the powder blue color that looks good on everybody. Maybe it's the stretchy cotton and acrylic yarn. But this sweater looks good on everyone who tried it on. No joke. We've been referring to the phenomenon as the Sisterhood of the Travelling Sweater.
So Liz decided to make one herself. She chose the powder pink from the book ("Liz knit pink? What a shock!" she wrote sarcastically) and after struggling with her gauge ("Liz obsessed about her gauge and used much smaller needles than was originally called for? I'm so surprised!" she noted in a snarky parenthetical aside), she finished the sweater. And it was too small.
