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. 🙂
