Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here to tell you about the crocheted sweater I recently finished.

High Wire Sweater

The High Wire sweater is a pattern from the inaugural issue of Moorit Magazine which is “…an indie craft magazine that puts crochet front and center.” This pattern was designed by Stephanie Erin and is a classic circular yoke sweater that is worked from the top down.

The pattern sample was worked in the same yarn I chose for the main color, Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sock in color “Remington” but I chose a different color from the sample for the color work and went with “Swoon”.

Completed Yoke

I love how the turquoise color makes the yoke look like you are wearing a necklace.

The pattern is worked from the top down so the sweater can be tried on as you go to make sure the fit is good. It has shaping for the bust, waist, and hips and fits me perfectly in the size I chose. 

This sweater took me about two months to complete. I thought the pattern was written well and easy to follow. The print version of the magazine is no longer available, but you can still get a digital version.

I’m very happy with how the sweater turned out and would recommend this pattern to anyone. In the future I might make a short sleeve version in a summer weight yarn. The pattern is only available by purchasing the digital version of Moorit magazine.

I can’t wait until spring gets here.

The weather has been on a roller coaster around here. We had some really warm days, but it didn’t melt all our snow and then we got a few more inches the next day. It’s easier to get around the yard with most of the snow gone though. I hope you all get to enjoy some time playing in your yard too.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and we are dreaming of our sweeties.

My guy, Fenris, sent me a lovely card for Valentine’s Day.

Isn’t he so handsome?

My gal, Tuiren, sent me a lovely card too.

I wish I were with her where there is green grass and warmer weather.

We had some warmer temperatures this past week but we’re heading into much colder weather for a couple of days. It sure would be nice to be with our sweeties down south in Mississippi. We hope all our friends have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
