Notes

June 16, 2011
My first sweater in the round--how exciting! I loved knitting this, especially the lace section. It’s magic how those leaves appear.

I made this sweater short because of my short torso. It hits right at the top of my hips. I probably would make it a bit longer if I made it again, but my last sweater was a little big so I was worried.

Even though I made it short, I am still surprised at how little yarn this ended up using--only 2 1/2 skeins.

I am having so much fun knitting this sweater. It requires a bit of attention on the lace part, but mostly it’s easy work. I’ve been knitting and watching TV--lately Twin Peaks, which I’m completely hooked on.
