So... blog's been REALLY quiet... especially in the knitting department. In my defense... I have 4 sweaters (that just need sleeves :-/). I really need to finish up some of my knitting projects. No worries... it's part of my goals for 2011 :-D
So tonight, I finished my first sweater since... a long time (last spring????).
The pattern is "Tubey" and is available for free on knitty.com. I love the construction and might make another someday.
This started as "mindless" knitting project to destash some leftover Caron Simply Soft while watching my niece's swim meets (have you people been to these things?? The first one I brought the sweater to was 6 HOURS LONG). Luckily I love her and continued to go to meets and work on the sweater ;)
When I make it again I would probably change the sleeves up a little (I like the bell... and the "roll", but fitted is nice too) and definitely make it a little longer. I might also do a solid color.
Long and short of it... I like it :) It's comfy-cozy and I'll be wearing it to Knit-At-Night tomorrow! :)
Ok... now to go finish other projects...
