I finished the Firenze sweater and blocked it in time for the Natural Fiber Extravaganza this past weekend. I will show you the pictures in a minute. If you recall I knit the above shawl earlier this year in the same color only to have the sample stolen from my booth about 6 weeks later. So, I have finally gotten around to making the replacement for it. This is actually the 3rd time I have knit Holbrook, but the first was in a different yarn and color. I sold that first one because the color I had used was discontinued and I wanted a new one in a current color. The one I made this winter that was stolen was that replacement. And above it’s replacement. Is that confusing? LOL
I really love this sweater. It’s so soft and comfy. It was a pretty quick knit too for a sport weight sweater on size #4 needles.
All the details and link for the pattern are in the Ravelry project page linked above. Here’s a direct link for the yarn if you are interested in that.
Is it crazy that I am hoping to have the Holbrook ready for Stitches Midwest which is next weekend? We’ll see!

I can’t believe someone would steal knitting! Ugh😖😖😖
Your sweater is beautiful! I love the colour!
I know! It is very puzzling. Thanks for the compliment on the sweater. :-)
[…] around to updating the blog. Hopefully this one will be staying in the booth longer than the last one […]
I guess you could say that whoever stole the sample was complimenting you in their own warped way. I used to get frustrated when another student would copy my work in art class, but my parents always told me to take it as a compliment. (Not sure at the age of 9 I could appreciate it. 😉 )
Yeah, you just have to let it go. Sigh. I am working on it. 😉
