My Favorite Fishing Sweater

If you are lucky enough to have a knitter who loves you and supports your compulsive desire to look and lurk in water…I suggest you introduce her to the Icelandic Sweater pattern. Knit with Lopi yarn or similar chunky wool, it makes the most incredible wading sweater. You know this person really loves you not by the overture of knitting the garment (even though that is an investment of effort far beyond expectation). The ultimate, most loyal love is exemplified in the blessing the knitter gives to take it into the woods with limbs and brambles just waiting to win the snag battle. “I’ll fix it….or just make you another one if I can’t”.


And the back…
