In my last post I told the story of how I knit two very similar sweaters. Today is the story of how I knit a third.
This was my very first published design that I knit for myself. It's not that I didn't like my other sweaters. Or that they weren't fun to knit or flattering designs. It just that once you've knit a sweater to fit a model, re-knitting it to fit a regular human body with a chest measurement of upwards of 40" is a long slog. And you also don't have the page-turning mystery of how it will turn out. The beans have been spilled.
I've been really astonished about the reaction to this sweater. Everybody wants to try it on, and, once checked in the mirror, everybody wants their own. I'll be leading a knit-along at my LYS, Knitch, in Delafield, Wisconsin, beginning later in May. Give them a call for details or leave me a comment.
