Winter Sweater Finished! Now What?
I started this September 14, and finished December 29, 2012. I could have knitted faster, but I found the stockinette, plain knitting boring. I used the EZ Percentage Method for my math for a 40 inch chest. I used a pattern called Collegiate Sweater from the Knit Picks Design Team for the color work part. It had the exact number of stitches I was using, and there was no jiggering around trying to match up numbers. Used size 3 needle for ribbing, and size 5 for body. The brown is Targhee semi-worsted wool from a friend's sheep and is mill-spun. The pink is my handspun from my stash.
Now what do I do? I am finishing up the little color work pouch, and then there is nothing on the needles! Gotta get excited about doing something else. But what?
Just proud that I have my hard-working, tough-as-nails everyday sweater to wear. It is loose, comfy, and just a little bit bunchy around the shoulders. But I love it!
