I picked up the Levenwick pattern from Brooklyn Tweed a while ago, and just fell in love with it! I got to work on it right away, and eleven days later I had myself a sweater.  This is the fourth sweater I have knit for myself and i think it's my favourite so far!

It was a fairlt easy pattern, though I changed it a bit.  The pattern called for reverse stockinette, but with te yarn i chose, regular stockinette looked better.  I chose some vintage buttons from my stash, but only had 6 that matched, so for the top button I found one with a brass four leaf clover on it.  Perfect, since I knit the sweater over St. Patricks Day! Anyways, onto the photos:








not a great photo as it distorts the colour, but it shows how it looks with the top unbuttoned

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.
