FO: Shalom

Yes, this is how I roll: Christmas two weeks away, lots of gifts to be working on, and I knit myself a sweater.

I didn’t intend the purple-on-purple modeling plan, but when it was done I was very excited to show you all.

The yarn was disappearing quickly at the end– when I calculated the pattern adjustment, I forgot to multiply the skein requirement by 4/3 as well.  As it was, I have about 4 feet of wool left.

I’m super happy with the weight and the lack of sleeves. Now I can be warm without my ubiquitous fleece vest and not worry about getting sweater sleeves wet in the kitchen.

Any FOs to share?

  1. Love love love!! Do you have to be a perfectionist for something like this to turn out well? I’m trying to decide weather this is a hobby/skill I should work on acquiring or just stick with croissants. : )

    • Excuse me, are you implying I’m a perfectionist?I did notice a row where the pattern was goofed up (I’m not going to show you where) but I’d alread knit thirty-some rows the third time, and I wasn’t willing to rip it out another time. I’m going to live with the flaw.I read somewhere that the Amish leave a mistake in their quilts to keep them humble.
