Bella Sweater

contributed by Shawn 

We have a lot of samples in the shop for customers to look at and all of these samples have to be knit before we can put them on display. Some of them are knit by staff, some we get from companies, and some are knit by our sample knitters. Kim has been knitting for us for over 10 years (!) and she recently finished up another batch of samples for the shop. When she dropped them off for us to oooh and ahhh over, she picked out something to knit for herself. 

Then, when she finished it, she showed us and very generously allowed us to 'borrow' the finished sweater so we could oooh and ahhh over IT as well. It is so soft and she did an amazing job - I love the detail!
It's the Bella Short-Sleeve Vest with Leaf Motifs from Essentially Feminine Knits: 25 Must-Have Chic Designs by Lene Holme Samsoe. She used Knit One Crochet Too Elfin Tweed Yarn in the color Berry Heather (#1261).
So inspiring!
