New Pattern: Over the Fence

Tomorrow, we're supposed to get something like 12 inches of snow. TWELVE. INCHES. Seriously, it doesn't snow in Delaware for two entire years, then we move here and it's like the state is getting all of the snow it didn't get for those two years, plus the next ten years' worth, all at the same time. Let me tell you how fun it's been: not fun at all. Anyway. I designed another sweater, because I need it. And I hate that.

During the testing process, I said that I didn't know what to call the sweater, because I never do. If it was up to me all my patterns would be called things like "Ladies' Cabled Pullover" and "Sweater with Two-Color Stripes", but that would make them hard to search for, and we can't have that. A knitter suggested that the cable pattern looked exactly like chain link fence, so I should call it "Over the Fence." 1) Dang it, she's right, and 2) Ok then. Done.

Over the Fence is a worsted weight all-over cabled sweater made for layering. The neckline is pretty wide, which makes it perfect for wearing over a button down. I find nearly all yarn itchy, so I like to layer my sweaters, but sometimes the neck is uncomfortable because there's too much bulk. Not so in this case! (As a side note to all you sewists out there, I'm wearing an Archer under the sweater. More on that another time.)
