It's a wrap -- one purple February Lady Sweater is ready to wear. The pattern, well-written but still very much a challenge for me, had been inspired by Elizabeth Zimmerman's famous February Baby Sweater in her book, The Knitter's Almanac -- thus the name.
I used a Rowan linen/cotton that I didn't like at first but grew to love. Isn't that the way it always works? My button choice was inspired by these African violets over a year ago and I used green-tea embroidery floss to sew them on.
I might change the name to the African violet sweater.
