a collection of color work knitted sweaters

Collected: Color Work Sweaters

It seems to be human nature to collect things. My three-year-old collects rocks in her pockets, my seven-year-old collect Pokémon cards, and many of us knitters collect yarn.  But why do we collect? The appeal seems to be more about the group of objects as a whole, rather than the individual pieces.  Those are great too, but it’s seeing them all together that is the most satisfying.

So today, I’ve collected color work sweaters that I desperately want to knit but just don't have the time.

There's something so satisfying about color work -- seeing the pattern emerge from your needles, and the methodic back-and-forth from your left strand to your right strand.  I hope you find something that inspires you from this collection!
