Starboard Sweater Again

I had knit a Starboard Sweater about a year and a half ago, for one of my daughters, and recently she and her younger sister are constantly fighting over it. 🙂 So I thought it was time that I knit up another Starboard, in a little smaller size and in a different color.

I had a specific color of blue in mind, so I dyed up two skeins of DK weight yarn in a tonal, layered medium blue shade. The Starboard pattern is so great, a simple top down style with pockets and picked up garter neckline. The pockets are such a hit and have held up well in the first Starboard sweater, so I’m hoping they do the same with this one. (As you can tell from the first photo, the pockets are already stuffed with trinkets!)

I really love how it turned out, and my little one has been wearing it non stop, even if it is in the low 80s! The yarn is a beautiful shade and I’m really happy how it turned out, so I may add it to the shop at some point.

Reading: Nothing, honestly. I started on one of my husband’s business books that are around the house so I might start on that again. I would love suggestions if you have any!

Shop update: I’ve been working on the wholesale order from Colorful Yarns, as well as replenishing stock in my own shop. I should be adding new colorways and restocks through this week!

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Linking with Nicole and Ginny.

  1. Pretty and practical, I like it! And fast, too. I’m a slow, slow knitter, so I marvel at people just whipping up a whole sweater that way.

    Book suggestion! I just finished reading “The Bookseller” by Cynthia Swanson. Really got hooked on it. If you liked “The Time Traveler’s Wife” or “Life after Life,” you’d probably go for this–similar but not exactly the same concept.
