Yarn: two hanks of Cascade 220 (for the Main Colour) and part-hank of another shade of Cascade 220 (for the Contrasting Colour)
Needles: 4mm circulars and dpns

Way back when I made my first Dolce far Niente sweater I said I wanted to do another one, only better this time.

I’m happy with how it turned out – the first one is cute, but something about this one (probably the more subdued colours) makes it a bit more “wearable” and less “look at me! look at me! I’m a child of the 80s!”

Other slight differences are the weight of the yarn (slightly finer) and the fair isle design (this time actual herringbone instead of what I thought would give me herringbone in the first sweater).

Witness the blanket of snow surrounding me. Also witness the slight blurriness to the photo – that’s from my hand shaking. I think I may have lost some of my gloated-about hardiness with the winter.

I’m sure the numerous car whizzing by and people crunching through the snow were wondering why that crazy woman was photoging herself sans coat.

A fast and fun knit, this one was on and off the needles in less than 2 weeks. I want to squeeze as many knits into winter as possible.

Next up: my 70s sweater.
Uh, maybe… truth be telt, it’s sittingly grumpily under my futon, multitudinous ends not woven-in and neckline not even begun.Hope the rising temperatures are echoed by a rise in knitting.

Me and winter are in a race, and I do intend to win.
