Think stranded colorwork mitt for your body! I’ve been working up the courage to knit myself up an all over colorwork cozy wool sweater and thought I’d first give a little cropped tee a try. After falling in love with Damon I’m ready to continue my stranded garment journey and something tells me you will feel the same way. Damon is a cropped, oversized tee with all over stranded colorwork in 4 colors with a slouchy shoulder detail.

Shane and I went on a little vacation to Iceland about a month ago and it was glorious! Iceland is SO fun, it’s really no wonder everyone is going there now. We had the best time.

Two weeks later we were off to Wilmington North Carolina for a wedding and we made a really nice long weekend of it, made even longer by some issues traveling back, but we soaked up enough sun to make it worth it!

This past weekend Laura and I went up to Minneapolis for Lily’s wedding and it was NOT beach weather. Not at all. But we had a great time in Minneapolis of course! I love it there.

SO! All this travel and Holla Knits stuff has lead to some quiet times over here. I’m back now and have tons to share so stay tuned!

I’m SO excited about my new sleeves! I love the look of the larger sleeves but it just didn’t work for me for every day – they were too big to do anything with them! The new modified sleeves work so much better for my everyday life. I can’t wait to show them off to you on Holla Knits Thursday!
