The Sweater

Well, I’ve finished my very first sweater. Coming from a long line of knitters (mother, grandmother), I feel kind of guilty it’s taken me this long to pick it all back up again. Regardless, I’ve finished a project that’s bigger and more complex than a scarf. Who knew it was possible?

Now that I’m all confident and cocky and sh*t, I’ve started a St. Bart’s Mini from Twinkle’s Big City Knits by Wenlan Chia. Overall, the book is for more advanced knitters, and I’m still referring to books in terms of how to read a pattern, but this ‘dress’ (which I’ll wear as a sweater, natch) is fairly simple (except for the bobbins, which I’ll not be doing) and a lot like the last pattern I just did, so hence the attempt.

    Your sweater is awesome, and the confidence it has given you to knit more and more – totally awesome. I can’t wait to see St. Bart’s Mini!

    And a big P.S. – thank you again for the fabulous book. I think you’ve picked the best pattern!
