A fairy godmother at Sock Summit gave me four skeins of Anzula’s Oasis. This is a wonderful yarn of camel down and silk: no elasticity, no luster, but soft beautiful colors and a dream to knit. So I made a sweater. I find that by itself it is an elegant and comfortable top. With a shirt under it, it is a light extra layer. Under a jacket, it is cozy and surprisingly warm. It seems only right to pass this pattern on. The stitch pattern looks complicated but is easy and pleasant to knit. One more advantage: Sabrina tells me the yarn can be machine washed. But I wouldn’t.
