A Classic V-Neck

I finally finished my Trillium sweater!

Next, of course, I had to find something to wear with it.  This taffeta skirt does not get much wear, so I thought I would pull it out of the closet.

Trillium is a really pleasant knit.  The stitch pattern is easy, but with enough texture that did not bore me to death as I was knitting away.  As much as I love a brainless stockinette or rib stitch (the perfect project while watching a movie) they do get a bit boring after a while.

And I am quite sure that I will be using this pattern again!

Last year's sewing was incredibly prolific, and I have been feeling rather lazy in comparison these last few months.  But I am spending much more time with my knitting needles, so although the finished projects are not coming as often, I am enjoying the process.  Which is, perhaps, more important than new dresses!

Sweater:  Made by me, “Trillium” from Rowan Knitting Magazine
Skirt:  Made by me, McCalls 3315
Necklace:  Shadows
Shoes:  Banana Republic


  1. Very pretty. I just checked out some of your other knits on Ravelry - very cute!

  2. Lovely, and the skirt looks stunning with it. I shall start knitting, soon.

  3. So very lovely! I adore garments that balance coziness and elegance perfectly like this wonderful sweater.

    Wishing you a beautiful start of April!

    Glorious! (I wish I knew how to type the wolf whistle.)
