I’ve just really been procrastinating weaving in all the ends. I love to knit stripes…. It just leaves too many ends to weave in! UG! But the Wee Monkey has already claimed this as her own, so sorry to anyone who had their eye on it. And no, I did not use a pattern, I just made it up as I went along, I love how the ruffle turned out at the end, don’t you? I promise to get pics of the WM with it on!
This will be so toasty when I get it done, and the pattern worked so well for me to be able to try it on as you can see to make sure I was on target for the correct torso length. Many thanks to the Crafter Monkey for taking the pictures.
This is the Crafter Monkey’s sweater, we dyed the yarn together this summer and I’ve been slowly working on it before I pass out at night, but it’s been a-lot of stockinette – Boring!! But easy to watch movies to. She wanted it to be bigger ’cause that’s the way she likes her outer wear, so she’ll definitely have it for a long time!
This is the beginning of the front of the sweater, after I completed the back I figured the front will go a bit quicker, especially since I’ve gotten hooked on watching Dr.Who streaming online. I’m still on season one so the way I figure it, I’ll have plenty of knitting entertainment stocked up for the winter. Thanks Doctor!
Now I have to spend some time with the Monkey Boy and Ravelry to choose a pattern for his sweater, now this ought to be fun…..
