So folks..I did it. I knit a sweater. Well, truth be told it is more like a longer-ish shrug. I have so much to share so if you are not into details just scroll down, check out the pictures Emily took and have a fantastic day...
But I must share, if for nobody else but myself.
So later on when it said to bind off for the neck I did not know where to start and stop..oops. So that is why it came out a little snug right by my underarm/boob area. I then decided to NOT increase as much as the pattern called for. I did not want the "wings" to be to "wingy" in the front, so I decided to increase less, which I think hurt me in the end.
And just to let you know..if you happen to stop by my house at anytime over the next few weeks I WILL BE WEARING THIS SWEATER!!
I loved knitting this and I loved what I was able to do, pick up stitches, short rows, seamed sleeves and followed MOST of the directions. and had a great time. What more can a girl ask for in a hand knit....
Well..maybe a little better fit.
But now skies the limit. My next mission, this sweater, and then this sweater and then who knows. But for right now on my needles I have a quick hat that I am working on and I am using the yarn called for
Brooklyn Tweed SHELTER, which I LOVE so far. Like really love and can't wait to use again..in let's say the Levenwick sweater.
All pictures were taken by Emily on a perfectly gray Tuesday...
Now go see some more good stuff over at Ginny's
