I love this sweater

I finished my sweater and wore it to work today. I love this sweater. It's made of 3 strands of 14/2 cotton on the Passap DM80 machine. It's extra comfy. I got lots of compliments...my boss even suggested I make one for her...NOT! I'm going to be too busy digging through my yarn stash for yarn to make another one. The only thing I will do different next time is to not make the neckline as wide. Because the sleeves/yoke is knit sideways and the yarn is 100% cotton, the neck seemed to get wider as the day went on. I'm going to thread some thin elastic through the cut and sew casing and cinch it up a bit. Other than that I love, love this sweater. Check me out in my new threads!



P.S...I've already accomplished one of my monthly goals...knit one sweater a month!

  1. I'm loving this sweater! You look gorgeous in it, what a HIT! It looks comfortable but also very elegant. You're tempting me to check out machine knitting.

  3. Ok you're on a roll lady! I love you sweater too. I really like the sleeves. Are they bell sleeves? The wide sleeves add drama. Not to mention the fire-engine red! It looks great!
