This sweater took over 14 months. I started it earnestly when I was recovering from a surgery. However, due to a variety of health and personal issues, it was a long slog to finish it. By the end of it, I really didn’t really want to pick it up. I also became slightly frustrated and disappointed in the pattern. I think the arm circumference numbers are too small for the sizes. It just fits my arms since I am more of a Small. I also wish it had short rows or shaping recommendations for the lice stitch. I bought the pattern book in store during the pandemic and was really inspired by it at the time. I will still knit from it but I need a break from sweaters. Hopefully my sweater mojo returns when the weather turns cooler later in the year.Continue reading →
Originally, I had bought this yarn for Sylvi, a big cabled coat. I started it, but it was on hold for years. In the end, I decided to frog it and use the yarn for other things. I usually think of sweaters first when I have an abundance of yarn.
I wanted a cozy, easy house sweater. This is an easy and straight forward pattern. It’s a top-down raglan with pockets. I even made it one size larger so it can have positive ease so I can easily throw it over anything in the cold months.
