kitty: A new fall sweater

Pattern: Pumpkin Pie
Designer: Heather Dixon
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton

I haven't had a lot of time for knitting as of late, but I did just finish a fun pattern by Heather Dixon called Pumpkin Pie. It had been on my list of things to knit for awhile. So when Wendy of Knit and Tonic fame listed a lot of 12 skeins of Blue Sky Alpaca Worsted Cotton on her destash list this summer I jumped on the listing.

The yarn feels like a teddy bear, but sadly is already piling after just one wearing.



  1. That's stunning--I love the neckline--so graceful and charming!

  2. Ditto Fleegle. Very flattering!

  3. That's a lovely pullover; I love the details of the cables along the sleeves and the neckline. Pity about the pilling… let's hope it stops soon.

  4. Your sweater looks GORGEOUS!
    Thank you for posting about it :o)

  5. I find that a trip through the washer usually stops BSA Cotton from pilling. Hope it works for you!

  6. I haven't felt much like blogging...and needed something to talk about. Glad you like my sweaters. That Bohus yarn is decadent--angora/merino.
