Living in this Orange Sweater

So, I don't know about you all, but I am pretty much living in the same limited range of clothing right now. My daughter is calling my daytime sweatpants my "pandemic day pants," and I have been mostly been cycling through different versions of PJs with layers depending on how chilly it is. But this sweater has been with me since that surprising snow storm that graced us that first weird weekend before we knew what was coming.
This orange Felix Pullover is like a cozy hug on our chilly mornings, and it's light as a feather. I love the color that our sweet Melissa helped me choose. It's nice and cheerful, but still heathered and interesting. My dear friend made one in the loveliest of deep bottle greens, which she is also pairing with sweatpants.
The pattern is an easy knit by a fabulous designer, and my size large only used 8 balls of Lopi, which we have in lots of great shades. Just give Sally a call at the shop between 11 and 1 during the week or email her anytime to find out what we have in stock.

The design was so popular, the designer released a cardigan version, which I am pretty sure I need to make next. I'll definitely need to choose a color that goes with my pandemic day pants.

Call 503.288.4568 between 11 and 1 Monday-Friday!
Email anytime!
