This sweater has traveled many miles, and is destined to travel some more. I started knitting this in Champaign, Illinois on our long trip up north, so it's seen Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ohio. And now that it's finished, it's leaving to travel around the country some more. To places like New York City, and Los Angleles, the deep South, and the West.
Some other crafty friends are doing a round robin with sweaters and shawls where each person sends their sweater to the other 11 people, who then embroider or embellish on it and pass it on to the next person. So as this sweater travels around being beautified, I will be trying to beautify 11 other sweaters or shawls. It should be fun, and I hope to have some pretty results to share here on the blog.
The details of this sweater: the Hourglass Sweater pattern by Joelle Hoverson, knit in Noro Cash Iroha, color Aqua. The fit is superb, and it was a great mindless knit. If you plan to knit this though, deinitely check the errata for the pattern, there are mistakes in the older editions of the book. And in the end, I changed the raglan shaping, as the errata was even wrong.
But overall a very fun, quick knit that produces a wardrobe-staple-sweater. What patterns do you turn to when you need a good, basic knit?
