:: knit one, knit another ::
i'm afraid i can't stop. me, the girl whose bio used to read, "julie hates knitting but knits one item each year." i just can't stop knitting.
in fact i've already got my next project on the needles. something for me.
but first: a little showing off. because i'm freaking proud of this little sweater. i wanted to make it but it scared the heck out of me. raglan shaping? neck placket? words i barely comprehended. i tried reading through the directions and they left me bewildered.
but then i just jumped in. i had yarn of the right gauge just sitting around and needed something to keep my hands and brain occupied, so i just started. and row by row i figured it all out. and it was actually pretty easy. and i love it so much.
** edited to add: the pattern is from joelle hoverson's lovely book, last-minute knitted gifts. it's one definitely worth investing in. **
