Crisis Avoided

Remember this sweater, and how I told you to make the adult version? Well, I took my own advice and made it myself! I don't really like many pullover sweaters these days, so I made it into a cardigan.

I had to adjust to the scale of things, since I've been knitting baby clothes for what's seemed like forever. When I finally tried my sweater on when finished, the neck was off my shoulders, as the cardiganization (!) of the pattern had made it too big. So I consulted my knitting guru Linda at the shop, and she told me exactly what to do. It worked perfectly, and now I have a sweater I love!

This is my first knitted adult garment in about 10 years. I'll definitely be returning to smaller projects for a break, but am planning my next sweater in the back of my mind.

Probably something just as out of season as this one.

I love it Holly. You continue to impress me! And, if it makes you feel any better, I too have been dressing totally out of season lately as I always seem to be freezing my ass off. Cheers.
