I had the pleasure of test-knitting Carabe - a new pattern from Justyna Lorkowska of Lete's Knits. It's a striped sweater with a slip-stitch detail and shawl collar. It has easily become my favorite comfy sweater.

I had a lot of fun picking colors for this knit. After some back and forth, I finally decided on Silver Fox and Nassau Blue, both on Tosh Vintage. It wasn't until after I'd knit a few stripes that my husband pointed out it looks like the Eagles team colors. Oh well - you can take the girl out of Philly, but I guess you can't take the Philly out of the girl. Maybe next time I'll knit one in black and gold. :)

I made a few minor modifications to the pattern, which you can read about on my project page.
