I, of course, have something new on the needles since I completed my Chloe sweater last week.
This is Sous Sous, designed by Norah Gaughan, an oversized pullover sweater designed for DK weight yarn.
I am knitting mine from stash yarn — second project in a row for me using stash yarn. It’s another discontinued Rowan yarn: Calmer, one of my very favorite yarns. It has great stitch definition.
The pattern calls for a U.S. size 6 needle and I got both row and stitch gauge using a size 6 and Calmer so yarn and pattern are a match!
I plan to make my sweater a little longer than the pattern directs, and I plan not to do the “reverse dip” on the front. I will likely make the sleeves a bit longer and bigger around. I don’t like tight sleeves.
The majority of the sweater is knit in double moss stitch, which is very tedious, but the results make the knitting tedium worthwhile.

It is stupidly cold here, with insane wind chill. Loki is lucky he has such a lovely thick fur coat!
