Lookee what I did!


Look! I knitted a whole sweater!

Okay, it's not the most flattering picture of me, but you get the idea. The pattern's from the first Stitch 'n' Bitch book and I knitted it with Rowan's Kid Classic yarn. The blocking went okay, but I didn't manage to get the sleeves any shorter. The sleeves kinda have a bell shape at the bottom, which I really like.

Anyway, it's totally wearable, and everything!

Edited, a year later, to add: I've frogged this sweater because, let's face it, it's hideous. I mean, I'm proud I knit it and put it together and that it was -barely- wearable, but it's not my style at all. That loose fabric, those huge bell-shaped sleeves when I can stand stuff that drags and inhibits movement? The upside is that now I've got some lovely yarn to work with again.

That sweater is awesome!

The hat that you made out of that sausage sweater yarn is perfect though.

PS. I am going to put the hat you made for me on display at the artist showcase as a reminder of friends far away.
