After all the Christmas work yesterday I managed to figure out the problem I was having with my sleeve. Hooray!
I read the pattern wrong. I hate it when that happens. But I'm also very happy because I was enjoying this knit and I was looking forward to creating a sweater for myself. One of my goals is to make more sweaters for me. I did have to rip back to the cuff and start again, but this gave me an opportunity to make a change to the lace, so all's well.
I bought a couple of commercial sweaters to help me with my sizing. I didn't have any sweaters that fit me. So I bought two simple designs with flattering necklines that I can also wear for the holidays. Is it just me, or do many of the store bought sweaters seem to incorporate current trends in hand-knitting? Or is this a chicken and the egg thing?
I've noticed that many people are posting about how they will be away from their blogs as they travel to their families. I wish them a safe journey and an enjoyable visit. For myself, I will be home and likely poking around on this here blog and the internet. Does anyone have any interesting links, or blogs to share? Leave a comment!
