I really love how these turned out. They are just gorgeous! I did not however really enjoy knitting them. The yarn is another one of those "little bit sticky" ones. So it felt slow even if it wasn't. And the pattern... there are a lot of M1's and they're a bit fiddly. I felt like I was fighting my way along. I am glad I saw it through as they are lovely but I won't be repeating it.
I feel like I haven't had anything to blog in forever! Secret projects don't lend themselves as blog fodder. The secret project is finished and will be revealed sometime in the next few weeks. It's really just an internet secret... lots of locals got to take a peek already. :)
Last February I took a sock class... and it certainly has been a year of socks! Well it's time for something new again (probably overdue, but lets not talk about that...) I started my first adult sweater! Sheri at The Loopy Ewe wanted to knit herself a sweater out of Dream In Color's Classy and in order to make sure she completed it... invited everyone to join her. She further enticed us with a promise of 20% off on the yarn to do it! I had a credit at her store already and I love Classy, so... I didn't need much arm twisting. There are quite a few people knitting the same sweater as myself as well as a few other newbies. I feel like I have some backup should any problems arise. So I feel a bit "safe" in my choice for my first. And not guilty for ignoring the sweater yarns I've already purchased because now I'll have some experience under my belt and can jump off on my own!
The pattern itself is pretty simple. It's Wicked. You've probably seen a million out there. The construction seems simple enough to be manageable and quick! The yarn is Classy by Dream In Color in Ruby River. So here I go! Perhaps this will be the year of the sweater!
Yes, I have a thing for reds and purples and especially together. That's probably fairly obvious in this post eh? lol!
