Dear everyone, I have a finished object!
I used Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter in the Snowbound colorway.
No super big mods, just added an extra inch on the sleeves. Which happened totally on accident, haha! We went to see the Secret Life of Walter Mitty, to which I brought my sweater to work on. Starting with only an inch after the shoulder short rows (3″), I came out with an inch past what my goal was (18″). It was quite a triumphant moment, haha. Then next day I busted out the second sleeve in an evening… and a lot of football and Parks and Rec, haha.
I’m really happy with this accidental mod, haha. I love the fact that I can pull the sleeves down over my hands (which proved to be really handy while taking these pictures, because it was freeeeezing. But not really. For Houston/Texas, it was really cold outside.
Anyway, this sweater has been in my queue for forever… and I’m so happy I finally got around to making it ^_^
(*SIDENOTE*: I got cowboy boots for Christmas! Never had a pair before. I’m super duper excited! Every time I put them on, I really want to go dancing. Two-stepping, yo!)
Started it on Christmas Day, while enjoying the wonderful family time. Then finished it on January 6th. Bam! The wonders of quick-knit sweaters on size US9 needles.
It was such a fun and mindless pattern to knit. If you’re looking for a classic sweater, thats also easy an quick… This is perfect! Plus, its also cozy and will keep you warm, if needed. I think it’ll become my go-to cardigan ^_^
