I am so thankful for the gift of knitting. It has introduced me to many of you. It connects me with my heritage (my Scottish grandmother taught me to knit when I was a wee lass). And it brings me so much joy! Growing up in Arizona I always wanted to wear sweaters but there were very few days that would qualify as sweater weather. In the Pacific Northwest, I get plenty of opportunities to wear sweaters. And I have reached that point where I feel like I can wear a hand knit sweater any time – not just for an occasion. This one is the Pheasant Pullover (Ravelry link) by Amy Christoffers. I know I will wear this one often.
