Years ago, I made this incredibly decadent torte (specifically the Chocolate Cranberry Torte) from an old issue of Bon Appetit magazine for dinner during the holidays. The torte was intensely chocolatey — kind of like eating a ginormous chocolate truffle and was a strong, warm memory of the holidays. The torte called for Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur, and so I ended up keeping half a bottle in the pantry for several years… that reminds me… I wonder where it is now?
In any case, all those warm fuzzy memories flooded back when I saw that Karen Maple had designed this beautiful cozy and elegant sweater for Twist Collective’s Winter issue using our yarn. The sweater is called Chambord (here on Ravelry) and features this delicate colourwork in the wide collar and cuffs. It seems like the perfect thing to throw on to stay warm this winter. I might need one myself… apparently we might get snow in Vancouver this weekend!
