Notes: This is my first CustomFit sweater. We are going to be offering CustomFit services (measuring, classes, knitalong) at the shop this fall so we're all making sweaters to try it out. I chose one of the "classic" designs. All the options (3/4 length sleeve, low-hip length, band width, etc.) were all pre-selected. Unfortunately my sleeve length measurements were wrong so this came out more bracelet length. The shaping is perfect. I have princess seams in the front for bust shaping as well as shaping up the back. It just fits so nicely. I made everyone at Purlygirls stop knitting so they could admire my new sweater. I love it!
It was pretty dark when these photos were taken. The sweater is a much brighter yellow-y green.
This just makes my fingers twitch. I want to reach out and rearrange the shoulders--though I think they are hopelessly asymmetrical. I want to make the stripes align. I want to take that raggedy, old felt hat off her head.
I want to find the person who made this and poke them in the eye.
Luna2 by Reiko Kuwamura. I just started this fun little stripey, short-rowed scarf last night. I'm using leftover Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in two colors and an old skein of Koigu KPM. This should be fun.
New CustomFit cardigan in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Woobu. I just swatched last night and generated my pattern today. It will be an open-front cardigan with twisted rib edging and maybe a dash of lace.
Sorry for the sudden absence. A few things have been keeping me away. The first is my new computer set-up. I now have my computer set up above my new treadmill for a walking desk. Unfortunately I don't have a proper rest for the keyboard and mouse and it makes using the computer, for the moment, extremely annoying.
Next up is gorgeous weather and spending a lot of time out of the house walking.
Another big reason is that we spent a good chunk of the long weekend cleaning out our basement and garages. We completely filled an entire construction dumpster and we've really only just scratched the surface. There is still so much to sort, decontaminate and organize.
Lastly, I've been knitting a lot. I just finished my first CustomFit sweater and I'm in love! More on that later though.
