It may not look like much to you...
...but this sweater is my first in the round, custom made for me! Remember The Thing? Well, this is my first resulting sweater from it. Obviously, I didn't over due it and went simple. But now I feel comfortable being able to make just about anything I want with the skills I learned from that book. I recommend to anyone wanting to begin designing sweaters. I know, I know, it's not definative, but it's a beginning. So, without further ado, I introduce My Sweater:
Excuse the hair and pj pants...
Pattern: Mine--Based off of skills learned in The Sweater Workshop by Jacqueline Fee
Yarn: Patons Merino Wool in Russett
Needles: Denise Circulars size 7
Notes: Yes, this is the Mariah yarn I purchased. I have quite a bit left over, so I think I'll try matching felted clogs.
I still need to wash and block it, but I am happy with it. It is one of those comfy hang out sweaters. I like the Patons, too. All in all, I think this sweater only cost me about $20. Not bad at all!
The other day Yoda and I went outside to enjoy the nice weather. Now, recall that I don't have a fence, so I have to take her out on her leash. I tried to get some action shots, but the leash is a real hinderance. I'll have to get Jeremy to hold her sometime while I snap away. Until then here are a few snaps from our little photo shoot.
Don't mess with the cutest
What's over there?
Can I go potty now--without the camera?
Hey! Get out of my yard!!!
