My first sweater! This is the FO post, the post with mods and tips is here. :)
This was so exciting to knit, I had a lot of nervous moments (will it fit? what if doesn't? did I make the right size? what cast off should I use? ) but over all it was a great experience. I definitely have a few areas where I can improve my technique, but I am really pleased that my first sweater turned out so well! It fits and I can actually wear it...in public! The designer was really great, I had to email her a couple of times with questions and she responded almost right away with very helpful answers.
Speaking of finish lines, this was one of my Ravelympics projects (Wips Wrestling) and I wasn't sure I'd be able to finish in time, but here it is! Now I just have to finish up my Fixation socks. I was planning on starting a hat and scarf, but I just don't have any motivation right now so I'll wait on those.
I'll probably dig through my stash and find a yarn I really want to knit up (I'm thinkin' Malabrigo) and start a project I can work on as I feel like it, without a deadline or goal. I sometimes lean toward being a "project knitter" so I have a bit of a tendency to get stressed out about the outcome of certain projects leading to intense knitting situations, like whiplash. I'm going to try work on being more of a "process knitter", I think this will help me relax more when knitting.
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette: Black (4 skeins), White (about a quarter of a skein), Edamame (about half of a skein)
