Can we first talk about how long it takes to block a 3xl wool sweater?! lol I finally took it off my bed today and itwas DRY!
So I must admit that I have no one to take pictures at my house. My grandmother is scared of my digital camera, so at some point I'll have a friend come over and take pictures. But here is what could do with a mirror. I LOVE how it looks now that it is blocked! It fits perfectly, and it isn't nearly as hot as I thought it would be!
The collar is really cute and its a good cut on me. The girls looks nice! lol :) Excuse my giant arm in the picture below I didn't know what to do with it! lol
All that being said I am thrilled I did this. It was fun making a sweater and trying to think of what to write about in a blog. Kinda made me feel almost important! Also there are a few mistakes in the sweater, I dropped a stitch two rows and if you look for it you can see it. But my girls from String Thing Shop always say that it is a "design feature." So I'm going to be happy with it! and I don't think that I have ever made something that is perfect. I'm just not that cool!
I have decided on my next sweater for myself, the Susie Hoodie from More Big Girl Knits. The pattern is actually why I bought the book, so I'm going to learn to seam I guess! lol I am going to use a navy blue Ultra Alpaca. (I Heart Berrocco Ultra Alpaca is feels like butta going through your fingers!) First though I have to make a felted beret for my Uncle Kevin, a pair of socks for him, and I'm making samples for my friends store! I'll post later this weekend with my WIPs!
