  • As so often happens after reading one of Dana’s edits, I search Ravelry and find most of them are already in my favorites – I like her style!

  • I love The Lovable Sweater and how actively non-prescriptive it is about the fit. It reminds me of a jumper I had that was big enough to fit two people in. I wore it to death, I loved it so much. Regardless of what a pattern says is right, I’m never going to enjoy negative ease.

  • Thank you once again for such cute sweater ideas!

  • Every time Dana posts my list gets longer!

  • Can’t say I was a big fan of Cherry when I saw it in the white. Then I saw the second picture!!! It’s going straight into my favorite s/library

  • Love Dana’s picks. I love them all and didn’t remember I had already bought Kentia pattern. Now, I want to make it. So off to the LYS I go. (PS: I also agree that the Cherry pattern is better in the sheer and balloon sleeves. Lovely.)

  • Thanks for finding patterns I didn’t know about. Cherry is going to the top of my list.

  • Oh Boy. You get me very excited but then I have to remember that most things itch me on my sleeves….. Do you plan on any long long vests? Love your photos

  • I love the idea of mohair for a sweater! I never thought of using it so it was see through. Brilliant!

  • Thank you Dana for these great selections! Always fun to read how you think about knitting and color.

  • I love every single one of your designs on the MDK post today! Will you put them all into one book, and I’ll be one of the first to buy it? Thank you.

  • As usual, Dana’s post has made my To Knit list a few sweaters longer! I love knitting as a way to love myself – the process and the product are self-love, for me.
    My greatest knitting sadness is that mohair makes me itch. I love all the mohair sweaters that have been out there lately. If anyone knows of good fuzzy substitutes, please share!

    • Have you tried Suri Alpaca?

      • Not yet, but it does look fuzzy! La bien aimee kumo is a blend of baby suri alpaca and silk, and I’ve been eyeing that for awhile. 🙂

  • These are so great! Going to my faves on Ravelry now— thank you! 🙂

  • I always look forward to your posts Dana!

  • What a great eye you have– thank you for sharing your finds. How did I miss this post in February? I must have had my head under the blankets, feeling the long winter doldrums….LOVE these! I particularly like the possibility of variation in Midori Hirose’s designs. I just finished her Chaika, which I first saw in your column!
