Considering glee

My Glee swetaer is 98% finished – it needs some hook and eyes clasps and two ends to weve in. I really pushed myself to just get it done, and I’m quite proud of the fact that I did. Love the zephyrstyle pattern – well written, and construction-wise – top down all in one piece – that is the way to go. Ravelry details are here.

Glee (98% finished)
Slightly blurry photo. While I’m thrilled with the fact that I made my first “Big Girl Sweater”, and that for the most part it fits, I’m not too excited about the body portion – I didn’t try this on as I went. I made the medium size to account for the *bewbs* I now have thanks to the little one. I think I maybe should have then followed the directions for the smaller size for the body. Pre-baby I had started wearing clothes that fit to my body more, so maybe that is what my hang up is here.

I’m so very proud of how I picked up stitches on the neckline!
Look at those picked up stitches!

The yarn is elspeth lavold silky wool – wonderful to work with, and light, but very warm! I do think I will get the hook /eyes and follow this through to the end. I set out to make this sweater and I did it! Yay me!

Saturday was a good mail day in terms of yarn. I received a skein of Blue Sky Dyed Cotton that I swapped for with another Ravel-er. I also received an order from the Loopy Ewe – I ordered two sock patterns, pattern keepers, dpn holders on Thursday and received my items on Saturday! That’s so beyond awesome 🙂 And now, since I have spent enough over the last year or so I now also have a credit! One more order and I get to be a Loopy Groupie – don’t think that credit isn’t burning a hole in my virtual pocket!! Sheri is just awesome, I would totally push for you to buy from her!

  1. I love it! It’s beautiful and I can’t wait to see it in person. My dumpy just-friends-sweater is hanging its head, knowing that your big girl sweater won’t want to associate with her now that she’s so fabulous!And can I just say that my new favorite word is “bewbs.”
