Jaime's Woolly Wool and Honey Sweater!

I finished one last make for 2019 - a sweater that had been on my to-knit list since its inception: Wool and Honey!

I choose to knit my Wool and Honey in the perfectly rustic and woolly, Tukuwool fingering weight yarn. This wasn't an original choice - Lauren had already made one of these last year and I've wanted one of my own ever since.

Tukuwool is a special yarn. It is 100% Finnish wool and the base is a heathered grey, making for deep and beautiful overdyed colors like this perfect yellow-green. Tukuwool doesn't have the softest hand, but it is made to work hard and last a long time.

If you don't already own a fingering weight sweater, I can't recommend them enough! Yes, it takes a long time to knit, but you will be rewarded with a sustainable wool sweater that is light enough to wear indoors and warm enough to transition outside on a cold day. Fingering weight sweaters are simply the best!

Wool and Honey is a fun knit that kept me occupied the entire time. The only stretch of straight garter in the round is a mere 5.5" which flies by. I loved executing the traveling dropped stitches that make up the honeycomb. I love the design details of the long ribbed cuff and tiny neckline. Overall, this sweater is a delight to knit and wear. I'm so glad I finally took it off of my queue and into my life!
