Isn’t it lovely 🙂 I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this sweater. And I learned so much.
I was always hesitant to knit something that needed to fit. I wasn’t confident in my skills, specifically knitting consistently sized stitches. So I stuck to hats or scarves, moving to a lace shawl. One of my goals was to knit my own sweater, and when the class popped up on Fancy Tiger‘s class offerings, I signed up.
Its not perfect, and I guess I could rip it out and change the parts I’m not thrilled about. But for now, I’m going to enjoy wearing it.
