So I might have a knitterly crush on Cecily Glowik MacDonald who designed yesterday’s Goodale sweater and today’s Idlewood. The cowl, the easy shaping and the brainless knitting made this sweater a fast fun easy knit.  Totally satisfying and worth while. I didn’t add pockets but that’s the only modification I made.

This is the perfect laying piece for autumn and fall. Since as always my gage is different than most knitters I made gage knitting worsted weight instead of  bulky so my version is not as heavy.

I love the bright yellow autumn color and the tweedy rustic-ness.

This is an easy sweater for the sweater knitter beginner but lovely enough for the advanced stitcher.  Though it’s a LOT of stockingknit you can easily zone out, watch movies, listen to audio books, or drink (heavily) while knitting this sweater with out making a single mistake.  Now I’m on to the next knit.
