Pullover #1: Sprig

I've decided to stick with my original decision to make 2014 the Year of the Pullover. Even if they never fit me (and let's hope that's not true), they'll fit my sister, my mom, or someone.

First up, Alana Dakos' Sprig:

In this fresh green color it looks quite springy, but I'm planning an early fall sweater, and picked up some Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Isadora, a muted dusty rose:


I've got deadline knitting to do, but I still think I'll swatch for this tonight--it's been ages since I've actually finished a big non-design project, I'm hoping this will jump start the sweater knitting mojo. Especially since, despite me declaring it to be Spring, we're facing 8+" of snow on Monday. Ugh.

Anyone else Pullover-ing for 2014? What's on your list?

That's going to be glorious! I love that pattern, and I've been thinking about maybe knitting it for myself at some point, but I have some other things I want to make first.
I don't have any pullovers planned at the moment, but I've been thinking really much about doing a lace weight cardigan. It would be lovely, but I'm realizing it would be A LOT of work and yardage. Especially since I'm not exactly a petite girl. :P

LOL - this one is. Someone gave me the Sprig pattern as a HPKCHC prize, and I have just the green in mind... though I love the idea of it in Isadora.
