First, for all of you who have seen the Fall Interweave Preview and sent e-mails - thank you! The upcoming issue features one of my sweater designs that I'm really excited about. There's a bunch of great sweaters, it looks like a really great issue (though you can't really go wrong with Fall knitting, in my opinion).
Cobblestone Pullover
Pattern: Cobblestone Pullover Source: Interweave Knits Fall 2007 Yarn: Classic Elite Skye Tweed in 'Upland Green'
I designed and knit most of this while I was in Dublin last winter. Despite finding n'ery a yarn shop there, it was a great place to be inspired - plenty of wool, texture and color all around to get the creative juices flowing. The Cobblestone was a bar we spent an evening in listening to traditional Irish music on the North side of town - I thought the name was fitting. My goal with this piece was simple shapes that would feature a nice tweedy wool and a goodly amount of texture without overdoing it. It's worked seamlessly with a round yoke and garter stitch strips up the side (below the underarms). A nice cozy sweater that I'm really looking forward to having this winter. 

Pictured here is the medium size - my apologies for the wrinkles. I was forced to photograph this in a pinch, before wet blocking. You know how those deadlines are. Thanks again for all your support — it is always very much appreciated. 
Happy knitting!
