Let me start off by saying a sweater out of sport weight - why do I do this to my self? These things take forever!
Project Details: I started on November 8th 2014 and finished today May 8th 2015. I know!!!! I held two strands of yarn together to get the gauge I needed on size 7 needles. I only wish it was a bit longer (but since it was bottom up I didn't know how long to make it).
I love how fitted it is and it is very very soft (which are good things).
Project Detail: Falling Water Shawl. I started this on January 23rd and finished it on February 17th. I had some good car driving in there to finish it up. Took 550 yards of yard and came out just perfect. I liked the pattern a lot and I made the large size on size 8 needles. The only thing that was strange was that I had to move the stitch markers for the repeats every RS of the pattern and the chart seemed a bit off.
I finished my first stretch t-shirt. The project failed at first. Seeing stretchy cotton is tough! But my second attempt came out better. The fabric and pattern were free from an estate sale. The pattern is Simplicity 6902. The pattern is from 1975 which is pretty sweet. I made no changes to the pattern and worked hard to match up the stripes. Overall the neckline isn't perfect - maybe next time!
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
