Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester DK

This is one of those perfect, everyday sort of sweaters for keeping cozy on chilly days - warm and body-snugging without being bulky and restrictive.

It was such a quick and easy knit, even with the little cable. I used the smaller needles for the garter stitch yoke, but I forgot to switch back for the garter stitch hem, so it does have a tendency to roll, but nothing an aggressive blocking won’t fix, I’m sure.

It took me a while to warm up to this yarn, but now I love it. It softens beautifully, yet remains quite sturdy. My son lived in this all spring and there is no sign of wear or pilling.
