Imagine a sweater that perfectly captures the beauty of a dense forest. In the midst of this forest the light filters through the trees, playing tricks on your eyes. Colour and shape reverse themselves, and the result is breathtaking. This is, perhaps, the most beautiful sweater I have ever knit. Meet Boreal, another brilliant design by Kate Davies.
I love the yarn - City Tweed, a lovely, soft mix of merino wool and alpaca.
I love the way the tweed gives the impression of gently falling snow.
Most of all, I love the mirror images of the trees and snowflakes.
It is almost enough to make me wish the cold weather would last just a bit longer so I could wear it. But then again, Fergus is at the stage where he is chewing up anything that gets near his mouth, so perhaps it is just as well that it will remain safely tucked away until next winter!
