When the weather cools down, Chuck is always the sweater I’m most excited to dig out and start wearing. Seattle usually doesn’t get too warm in the summer, so I often get chances to wear my hand knit cardigans all year round. I never bother packing away my woolly cardigans for the summer because I wear them on chilly evenings. Pullovers on the other hand, I never wear those in the summer even if it is cool enough because it just doesn’t feel right.
I knit Chuck in the beginning of 2012, and since then, it’s been my favorite fall sweater. The color just shouts fall to me, and I like how bright and cheerful it is. With our gloomy weather, bright colors are a must. Plus, it’s a good sweater to help stretch my wardrobe. I only need to add Chuck and a pair of tights to make a summery dress work for fall. I’ve already worn it like that twice this week.
As you can probably tell from all of the pilling, I really love this sweater and wear it a lot. I was kind of disappointed that Chuck didn’t win in the fall KAL polls because I’d love to have an excuse to knit myself a new one. Maybe I’ll finally get around to it next fall!
