Jean Genie



We in the middle of Autumn peak here, so Jean fits in perfectly as the trees are covered in yellow, mustard, orange and reds. These couple of weeks can be quite wonderful here, all depending whether we have rain or sun. This year has been a bit blended but on th whole quite nice. And it is also the time for putting on your woollies, so a nice pullover with nice cable work is just what the season calls for.

I spotted this sweater the moment it came out, it didn’t linger log in my queue either. I had some Holst Samarkand in a mustardy yellow that I thought would be a good fit. Now this yarn is one those that is a bit oiled for knit-machine purposes. It makes that it feels a bit more rough than it ought to do and while knitting with it, my hands get kind of moistured, which is kind of an added benefit. 

It is a rustic yarn, with nubby silk and I think it goes well with this pattern. I did not change much for this one, did an half-open collar as I thought that would suit me better. After washing the yarn became lots softer so that was good too...

So excuse my just-washed hair, and off for an Autumn walk...
