It has been so hard to think about knitting for this Fall this season, with temperatures in the 80-90's in October in Ohio. The thought of warm fuzzy sweaters just seems so distant.

The local Japanese Gift store gets a few knitting books in each season. Most are geared to an older clientele, but this book has a few sweaters that I thought were pretty cute so I picked it up.

The patterns though do spread a wider generational gap then normal. Which I thought was a really nice touch, but does make the book lack some focus.

  1. I like these sweaters. But I would need you to translate the patterns for me first. Your Japanese is so much better than mine.
