Woo Hoo! I’ve got another finished sweater!
The knitting on this one went like the wind- a combo of a big (ish) gauge, short sleeves, cropped waistline, and my time off work for spring break. I essentially finished this bad boy in a week!
It’s just as cute as I was hoping for (though it is a little itchy. But, I’m a knitter- I can survive itchy wool). And, it fits like a glove!
Get ready for some awkward-as-friends pictures! (I was home alone, and had about 5 minutes to try taking pictures between pouring rain and hail!) I need some lessons on taking nice pictures of myself wearing sweaters- everyone else on Ravelry seems to get it, but I always end up making myself look like a big goober. Of course, I am a big goober, so maybe that’s the problem.
Anyway! Ta-da!The modified collar turned out perfectly, and I love the additional cable down the spine. And, this sweater is surprisingly warm! That means I can wear my summer dresses in the spring (at least while it isn’t raining).
Have you finished up any projects lately?
