It’s finished! My first sweater!
I started this piece back in March and finished it up last month. It probably would’ve been done sooner, but weaving in all those ends was driving me nuts, so I had to take a few breaks from it. haha
I love this project though, it was so much fun to make!
This sweater was knitted up in a size small. I also CO with size 8 needles (instead of 9, which the pattern called for) and used that for all the ribbing, and the body was done in size 7 (instead of 8). For the side decreases, I added a couple more to make it fit my waist better.
If you’re interested in making your own, you can find the pattern here.
I finally have my Wordpress set up and posted my first WIP Wednesday. :) I’d love if you guys would visit it. <3
Shawl in progress. :)

Today is just not a good knitting day for me. I managed to do my first heel turn on my socks that I’m working on and I got all the way to the first couple rows of the gusset and ended up having to rip all the way back to the last row of the heel flap. I accidently did a yarn over somewhere and so I had a hole which I tried to just rip back a few rows to fix but when I tried picking up the stitches the ones next to them kept dropping and they were so tiny, ugh it was a disaster. So then I decided, okay I’m gonna start a new project to give me something else to work on instead and I kept ending up with the wrong number of stitches and having to rip back so I quit. Apparently I just need to stop for the day…
Oh and spinning wheels are the most expensive thing in the world. So there’s that too.
So I see a lot of people on here who spin their own yarn. How did you guys get started? Cause I very much would love to do that, but I mean, where do you even get the fluff from? (And by fluff I mean cotton or wool or whatever you choose to use). I need a beginning to end explanation because I seriously have no clue whatsoever.
But I really really wanna try.
Testing out a couple ideas for my friend’s birthday gift. I’ve never designed a knitted piece before so this has been quite the challenge. I still have yet to design the rest of it, but I think the Superman symbol looks pretty good so I can now move on to the bigger part! :)
Also, I think I’m gonna stick with the colored one. The all blue one is hard to see unless you really look at it, but it was a neat idea that I might use later for something else.
Another note, the blue one is blocked, the colored one is not.
My socks are happening!
Just about to cast on my very first socks! So excited :)
The sleeves of my sweater were getting a little frustrating so I started up a mini side project. c: #knitting
This beautiful little bunch of yarn and my blocking mats arrived three days early. My day has been made. #knitpicks #knitting #yarn
