FO Friday | Footprints.

The amaryllis is still going strong, but I think we're all ready for a different Friday view. So I'm delighted that Heidi has published Footprints in the Snow and I can share my finished project with y'all!

I finished the knitting on Sunday and finished the rest Monday morning. With the help of a small fan, it was dry to wear out Tuesday. Of course it was nice to have a "new" sweater, but it was even nicer to have Katie take photos.

It's wonderful to have her behind the camera (she does such a nice job!) and this neutral brick wall on her deck is a near-perfect setting.

The design is a very classic pullover, knit seamlessly from the top down in a versatile DK weight gauge (22 stitches and 30 rows to 4"). I mixed Shibui Linen and Silk Cloud on a size 6 needle; the linen/silk/mohair blend will be a nice transition piece for spring and fall here in Atlanta.

The mock turtleneck is 5" of 1x1 ribbing (honestly, the most tedious part of the whole project), folded in half and sewn down on the inside. I left a long tail so I didn't even have any extra ends to weave in - and the seam was really easy.

The only modification I made to Heidi's design was to shorten the sleeves by about 2". If I make this again - which I plan to! - for warmer weather, I might shorten them even more. For winter, though, I think her length as written would be perfect.

Heidi is definitely one of my desert island designers. I hope I get the opportunity to test for her again.

The process that Katie and I use for these photos is simple - I give her a memory card, tell her what knitting details I want to highlight and she does the rest. Without fail, there is always something fun waiting for me when I import the photos.

and on this smiling note, Happy Friday, Happy Weekend (and GO EAGLES)!!
