we are knitters abruzzo sweater kit – begin!

Hey everyone!  It’s been a while — so much has been going on!  A family member recently passed away, I got a new job that I start at the beginning of August, my car is in the shop and might be unfixable, my mom and I went on vacation, and all of this plus some other big life stuff has got me really busy (not to mention overwhelmed, minus the vacation)!

Needless to say, I’ve been a bit slow with the crafting, but I did want to do a little update post on what I’m primarily working on now.  I have occasionally picked up my king-size chevron crochet blanket but I’ve been really excited about a knitting kit that the nice people at We Are Knitters were so kind as to send me for review: the Abruzzo Sweater kit!  Here’s some of my progress:

Abruzzo Sweater Kit Progress

First off, let me say how grateful I am to them for letting me try out the Abruzzo Sweater kit because I really do love all of their yarn I’ve tried (and I’m not just saying that, I even used it for my free knitting pattern earlier this year, the Olympia Cowl), and I’d been wanting to try a pattern/kit for a while.  So thank you so much to We Are Knitters!

The photo above is the back side of the sweater.  It’s knit with the cotton yarn from WAK & their size 8 (5 mm) needles.  I’m making the size medium using the colors Salmon & Terracotta and I love both the yarn and how the colors are coming together!

There will be much more detail in the in-depth review that I will post about the kit once the sweater is complete, and I’ll continue to post progress here and on my Instagram (@notyouraveragecrochet).  If you’ve made this kit or any other kits from We Are Knitters (or even if you’ve just tried their yarn), let me know what you think in the comments!
