And it's done! It's a little big though. I don't know what I was thinking when I cast on for this, um, a long time ago. Details here. I guess I just picked the Large, guessing that the sizes were S(M,L,XL). But for that the chest measurement was 46". And well, given that I knit a tad loose, it ended up more like 49". It fits ok, the fabric composed of garter stitch with worsted weight yarn, it's pretty thick. I love the construction, I just wish I paid more attention when I knit the back. I should've known early on (like within the first repeat of the pattern) how off it was going to be.
Which leads me to what I plan to work on this year...knitting sweaters that fit. Actually this was last year's goal but I didn't knit that much (house remodel -- floors -- which means I spent half the year moving furniture in and out -- twice each -- of the house). This time for sure. The sweater I'm going to start with is Caramel, because I already have yarn waiting, an on-going goal, stash reduction. Besides since it has overlapping fronts -- I only have to pay attention to the back. Plus it's knit top down so I can try it on as I go!
Other goals, the usual, knit more (wip reduction), spin more, weave more, lace more. What about you? Leave a comment then head on over to Fiber Arts Friday to see what everyone else is up to!
