Oh. Hi! Yeah. So remember me? I used to knit. Well, I still do knit. I knit a lot, actually -- knitting happens almost everyday! Those t-shirts and posters about "knitting is cheaper than therapy" and "I knit so I don't kill people"? I could be the poster girl!!
I have finished something.
- Project: Low Tide -- Low Tide by Emily Wessel, Tin Can Knits
- Modifications: Short rows to even up fronts/back, add waist shaping; sewn hem; a few rows of garter stitch to finish edges of sleeve caps
- Yarn: Make.Do Be Fingering/Sock Superwash, two skeins (?-need to double-check this)
- Needle: US 4
- Start to Finish: August 18, 2012 - March 10, 2013
You can get a full run-down (as full as it gets) of my mods/reasoning on my Ravelry project page.
Here I am reflected in the very flattering mirror of a AllSaints Spitalfields dressing room last month in Chicago (also wearing my first-ever pair of skinny jeans tucked into my oh-so-awesome boots!). The sweater looks okay, but I have lost at least 35 pounds since I began knitting and, while the overall style is rather forgiving, it is definitely too big. It's also knitwear, so there's some naturally occurring stretching out as it's worn and eventually it was falling off my shoulders.
I'll wear it a few more times and then decide what to do. Give it away? One of my Knit Night buddies suggested ripping it out and starting over! I've actually done that before, so it's a possibility.
How are you all doing? What are you knitting? Finished anything lately?
