Yarn: Freedom Spirit
Size: Only a bit too big
I continue to be challenged by sweater knitting. Glad this one was not a complete disaster - it is borderline, though. It looks a bit like an old man sweater (sorry Dad), but I think I'll wear it a lot due to it's cosiness.
Feels very light, almost like you're not wearing it.
Strange colour pooling, especially on the button band.
Could be a size smaller - the cabling and ribbing makes it expand.
Shaping is totally lost.
Not flattering to the figure when buttoned.
Sometimes feels like it's falling off my shoulders, tho' this is overcome by holding it closed with a brooch.
Thanks for the compliments on the Double Bordered Scarf, everyone. The person in the photo is not actually me. It's Stephanie, our Art librarian, who is the recipient of the lovely scarf.
Two disastrous sweaters from the past take on new lives, and the beautiful North Sea Shawl is finished, dressed and photographed in Nature.
