a red guernsey

Red Guernsey2

Here is my last contribution to the current drive: a child's guernsey pullover, my first effort at a guernsey but probably not my last. Knitting those textured stitches was a lot of fun. I used an old pattern that I found in Debbie Bliss's "How To Knit" book, but I made some changes because -- well, just because. Knitter's choice, as Meg Swansen and Elizabeth Zimmermann like to say in those knitting videotapes I love.

Very pretty sweater. The neck and sleeves look roomy and comfortable, too. What a lucky child who will receive this gift!
