A new peachy sweater

When I go in holiday in February I like to take some knitting with me because my Winter holiday is a real relaxing one in which I am almost criminally lazy. Before going to the beach in the morning I like to sit on the terrace of my hut and drink coffee, contemplate and knit. Last year I started this wonderful scarf but this year I took something a little less taxing with me....even more lazy than usual (mind I do swim 30 min every day in the ocean...)

I knew I wanted to knit this pattern because I loved the wide raglan feature on this jumper but was very unsure about what colour. So I went to Loop with no real idea and found myself attracted, quite unusually might I say, by a few skeins of Madelinetosh in a peachy pink. The colour is called "Pink Clay" and I chose the Light Fingering yarn.

The pattern is called "Walk Along" and is by Annestrick. The sweater from this pattern is knitted with two different colours but I literally was only interested in the wide raglan so concentrated on this feature alone and basically adopted everything else to my taste.

Neck and cuffs are similar finishes but I adopted again the same finish I used in this sweater.  I love the lightly rolled finish. It's not to formal but still a "proper" finish rather than a raw edge.

This was an easy and relaxing knit altogether. The instructions were well written and a pleasure to knit.
