Allagash proves, I think, that chunky yarns look great in fitted sweaters. I love this sweater by Kristen TenDyke. It’s name is Allagash, and it’s included in Kristen’s soon-to-be self-published Knitting Maine. (Kristen is also author of Finish Free Knits (Interweave Press). If you love to knit and hate to sew, this book for you.)
Allagash is worked in Puffin/Nasturtium from the bottom up, and, in Kristen fashion, there’s no seaming afterward. The pocket construction and set-in sleeves are worked along as you go. How nice is that?
It’s great to see this piece on Nyanen. She’s off to college and we miss her. She’s so good at smiling with her eyes, ‘sm’eyes,’ as she calls it.
