The weather has been so lovely here in Phoenix, so much so that I had an urge to cast on another sweater!

On my needles is Kipsap by the Berroco Design Team (free pattern). For this project I’m using my stash of Rowan Hemp Tweed Chunky in the colorway Griege (a light oatmeal beige) and a US size 10 1/2 circular needle (Lykke Needles in Driftwood). I haven’t quite decided about the front neckband yet. While I like the “whimsical” look, I prefer a more polished and neat looking neckband. So I may do a garter stitch or rolled neckband.
This is a very easy pattern, very well written and one that I would say is perfect for that beginner knitter wanting to try a garment. While this is a seamed piece, the construction is simple and it will be a snap to sew up.

As mentioned in an early post, I have been thinking about incorporating my handspun with commercial yarns. I personally think it would give more interest to the knitted garment and would be a nice touch of using my very own yarn creation.
