Last night, while watching Wuthering Heights with Jonny, I finished my February Lady Sweater. Without even weaving in the ends, I immediately jumped up and put it on. It looked pretty frumpy. There was funny armpit bunching and it was definitely on the small side. I poured my hopes into the washing and blocking. I prepared to console myself with the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this sweater, and used stash yarn that I bought on super sale years ago. I shouldn’t expect too much from my first attempt to knit myself a sweater.
BUT OH MY GOODNESS, THIS SWEATER ENDED UP BEING PERFECT!
I hope that didn’t come across like prideful bragging. It wasn’t meant to be. I am just a little bit happy.
I coaxed Jonny outside today for a very serious fashion shoot to document this very important first in my little knitting world.
(Begging Jonny to stop what he’s doing-he was being so dorky ridiculous.)
Trudy has no respect for hand knits and actually hooked a claw in an eyelet. No damage done though.
p.s. I typed up extensive Ravelry notes here.
I must say that the Cascade ended up being a very pleasant surprise. It makes a lovely garment.
(and obviously, Jonny took all these photos.)
