I don't actually think that I can succeed at National Knit [a] Sweater Month, since it involves knitting a 50 000 stitch sweater in just a month. I not only started 3 days late, but I head back to camp this Thursday and I don't have much time to knit while there.
But I thought it'd be fun to knit along! I'd be happy if I could get the body done this month.
|Collar and first pattern repeat complete today.|
I'm making the Reverb by Tanis Lavallee, a cardigan pattern I've been oogling for about 6 months now. I've even pictured it in this yarn, although I've attempted it on two other knitting projects. I think this will be the best marriage between yarn and pattern!
And the best part is that I'm not the one who picked it! I narrowed down my sweater choices to three patterns and the yarn to four colours, and asked my boyfriend for his opinion. He picked this pattern and this yarn, and I'm so happy with his choices!
Obviously it's meant to be!*
