Some projects seem to fly off the needles. The February Sweater is one of those projects. It took me 2 weeks to knit. That's pretty quick considering I'm not a very fast knitter. I think it helps that I've made the baby version of this lovely garment a couple of times so I have the basics down. This is a fantastic pattern that was quite simple in execution and I think it would make a great beginner's projects. Ok, advanced beginner cause you have to know how to increase and purl. You could always cut out the lace if you wanted to really simplify it.
Being an avid watcher of What Not to Wear, I have come to understand the need for busty ladies to lock and load the girls so I did 5 buttons instead of 3.
I'm not sure you get the full effect with the baby bump sticking out. We'll have to wait til the winter to know if that was a good choice or not. As it stands, I'm quite enamoured with this little number. Too bad it's way too hot to be modelling it.
My second pair of Froot Loops are in the category of knits that seem to take forever.
I usually knit socks at work but I had a busy couple of weeks so no knitting. I'm trying to finish these up before the Tour de France starts so I can focus on lace knitting. I also have an idea for a men's sock pattern that I'd like to try out but I'll have to have some time to concentrate on that.
And in other news, look what Jill made me!
Isn't it GORGEOUS! It's totally me and I love it. Go over to her blog and tell her how much you love it, too! (I'm trying to get her to open up an Etsy shop so that knitters everywhere can enjoy her gorgeous yarns.)
