The Looking Glass sweater is finished. I sat outside this morning and sewed on the buttons!
The yarn was so fun to knit. It’s Numma Numma Texas Toasty in Blue Corn Masa. It looks like this particular yarn is discontinued.
I changed some things. Of course. I just picked up stitches for the front band and did a knit two purl two rib. The pattern had you knitting a cable band and sewing it on. Um, nope!!!
I did a bunch of decreases for the sleeves. They were supposed to be knit straight. They would have been huge!!! I also did picot hems on the bottom and the sleeves. It makes for a great finished look.
Do I love it? Not really. Superwash grows when you block it. I think the next time I wash it, I’ll throw it in the dryer for a little bit. It will work great as a knock around, wear at home sweater, so My Hero doesn’t have to look at me in a sweatshirt every day! Minnesota winters are long, you know!
If I don’t wear it, I found someone who will!
She’d sleep under that thing all day long!
And…I also finished Citron. It just needs blocking. That’s on my list for later today!
Now it’s off to the allergist with one kid. He’s kind of a mess right now! Then it’s back home to start packing. We’re going to visit The Genius for a while!!! Stay tuned for beach pictures!!!
