here are some more... First is a pink sweater. A REALLY pink sweater. The yarn was payment for some knitting I did as part of an organized swap. I didn't have a say in the yarn or I probably would have asked for something less, well, less pink. In the end, it was kind of nice to have a yarn I wasn't too attached to for this project as it was a completely new pattern that I was working up as I went along. Unfortunately, it turned out cute and I will never get to use it on M because it is just WAY too shockingly pink on her. The photograph makes it look like a nice warm hot pink but it's a bit harsher in reality.
And a few that are finally finished:
First up is the Koolaid sweater. It needed work on the neckline, so I added 1x1 ribbing to make it fit better.
Next up is the longies I knit with Malabrigo Twist in the terron color. I think they turned out nice but I don't love them. In fact, I have yet to block and lanolize them. I doubt M will wear them more than once or twice. They just aren't the right color. I wanted dark choclate, not burned grape. I think I'm going to have to open up an online shop just to offload the items that I finish but don't like... even if it's just to payback my yarn investment!
I also intend to release my two sweater patterns (the koolaid and the pink) soon if I can get someone to test knit for me. Any takers?
