...knit fingering weight sweaters. Seriously. What was I thinking?
The Apres Surf sweater appeared in the Interweave Knits Summer 2008 issue and I loved it from the start. I found some Louet Gems in just the right shade of purple at Make 1 Yarns last year. It seemed like fate.
Never mind that it would be like knitting 5 or 6 pairs of lace socks.
To be honest, it wasn't a very difficult knit. It did require attention and so I took regular breaks to knit plain socks. The whole thing was knit on 2.75 mm needles since I found that using the recommended 3.25 mm needles gave me a sweater back that would fit my husband.
In the end, I knit this sweater over a two month period and I have to say it turned out quite well if I do say so. It's a bit snug but that's part of it's appeal.
My next sweater will definitely be worsted weight.
