I have always wanted to do a project from Winged Knits and this is the first one. Goodale looked like a nice summer sweater and I decided to use some new stash yarn from Julie Spins for it.
Project Details: Started on June 19th and finished on July 18th. Of course I had a lot of other projects going - but I did work pretty hard on this. Size 7 US needles and 3 skeins of Julie Spins MCN 250. Her hand dyed yarn didn't pool in any way or look strange. As a matter of fact I like the hand dyed look. I'm thinking this might be perfect over a dress this week. I decided to make size 38 (which is larger than I normally wear) just to have this be loose and baggy. I think it made the sleeves a bit too large - but I can test blocking that out. I also only put one button and the icord for that I did with a simple cast on and cast off. Other than that I wish it was a tiny bit longer. If I were to do this again I would knit maybe an extra inch or two for the body. I do love the pockets.
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!
