That’s what knitting guru Elizabeth Zimmermann said, and I agree. It’s so nice to work with soft springy apple green wool instead of flaccid cotton. (Although with that descriptor, who wouldn’t prefer wool?)

Here’s about 1/3 of a sweater from a pattern said Elizabeth thought up for a baby, modified for an adult (not by me, though; by this knitter). It’s a delight to knit and I’ve been stuffing the ever-growing thing in my purse so I can do a pattern repeat on my lunch hour. I’ve realized I don’t wear the bigger things I knit, just the scarves and gloves and hats, so I’m hoping this one will break the trend.

As Elizabeth said, “Knit on.”
