Joy of knitsI have to confess: I have never made a sweater for myself that I really liked. I know, its awful. Criminal.
Socks, no problem. Love every pair of socks that I have made, love every pair of socks other people have made for me.
Scarves, shawls, almost as good. Wear them all the time.
Stuff for the kids--sweaters, vests, ponchos, much of it is worn.
Dishcloths, no problem. Use them all the time.
But an actual sweater? Not yet.
First sweater--the ribby. Liked it, hate the yarn! I used Lamb's Pride Superwash, and I find the fibers POKEY--and I love the gentle scratchiness of wool. But not this one. Plus, its too short.
Second--wrap sweater. Tried it on and frogged immediately. Hairy gorilla.
Third--Summer Tweed green one. Its ok, but I just do not like wearing it. Worn once.
Here is the next one--The Ballet Camisole. I used a Cotton/silk blend (from a now frogged camisole). I am not sure. Its too big! Not a lot, but enough to be loose. It should be tight for this style of clothing. Maybe if I had a shirt to go under it--I only have one woven collared shirt though, and its not a good color with this.
Maybe another loser. Am I really so picky?
The floor is open for suggestions on what to do with this.
But, I continue to be an optimist....
