So I took Vivian to knit night tonight and modeled her. Everyone liked it and said it was pretty; even some other people who aren’t part of our group. So they must have all meant it and weren’t just being kind. The general consensus was that while hoods are great this sweater doesn’t need one and looks great without one. I cast this on at our knit night group’s get together on New Year’s Day. I know it spent over a month in quarantine but to say I am ready for it to be complete is a bit of an understatement. I want to be able to wear it! Soooo I did an i-cord bind off around the collar when I got home from knit night tonight. Now I just have to seam the underarms, weave in ends and sew in the zipper. Hooray! As long as it isn’t sweltering during the day I should be able to wear this at MDSW. I am super excited.
Oh and the pattern that was giving me fits last night? I have decided it is high time I learned how to knit with the pattern as a guide and just knit it to fit my body. It appears I am at least relatively close to the final measurements listed in the pattern so I will just go on my merry way.
