I mentioned knitting ……it has been a blessing during this time of recuperation. It has literally kept me going when discouragement has taken over.
The sweater pattern and yarn I picked up at a yarn shop in Decorah, IA when I visited my sister who lives there. A lovely shop which I will visit again and take pictures. They have an online presence as well. The pattern is for Intermediate knitters but I think any adventurous Beginner could handle it. I adjusted the sleeve and the neckline a little.
I attempted a sweater early on and it was a bit overwhelming. I was determined to get back to it once I had more knitting under my belt.
The first sweater that I completed is actually a summer shell. It is made up of a variety of lace stitches. It was a lot easier than I expected and seemed to go quickly due to changing stitches often. It’s made of 100% cotton yarn.
If you choose to follow my blog you can choose any one of these patterns for free. They are in pdf format. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Knitting will undoubtably be mentioned here again.
Have a good week!
