Early April

19 Apr

And here is the sweater I made out of the frogged Mountain Colors yarn! It is sort of based on a sweater I saw in the British show Foyle’s War, but with a bobble panel thrown in because I wanted to spice things up.

Pros:

  1. I like this so much better than the previous sweater made of this yarn!
  2. The puffed sleeves (although you can’t see them here) turned out really well
  3. I made this up all by myself and it doesn’t suck!

Cons:

  1. There wasn’t enough yarn for long sleeves
  2. I would have liked a little more yarn for the collar. Maybe I’ll pull just that out and start the short rows sooner.
  3. I’m one button short. I have to remember to buy another card.

Conclusions: A success! So much so that one of my friends wants me to knit her one just like it.

Bobbles!
