Ever since I first learned how to knit, I’ve been dreaming of the perfect cabled sweater. I’d keep notes from what I liked about commercial pieces and other knitwear designers’ work (and what I didn’t). Then I literally dreamed about what became the main cable after a late night flipping through stitch dictionaries, when I woke up feverishly sketching. Many more sketches and countless swatches later, I started knitting. And it eventually shaped up to be not just the perfect finished sweater, but the perfect project, with just-so proportioned cables and details, and, importantly, in the right yarn. Watershed is to knitting what high-quality paint is to the canvas, especially in the Penstock shade—what looks like a dark charcoal grey from afar is actually built up from a blending of beautiful, jeweled colors, winking in the dark. This is my dream sweater.
