Retreating Sweater

I finally knitted a second sweater. Yes, I know, seems ridiculous that this is only me second adult sweater.

Any who, here is my test knit:

Yes, it doesn't quite meet as much as I'd like, but that is part of working the kinks out of a test-knit.  I have already started my second one, with some modifications.

I love the overall construction of shrug turned sweater.  It makes for a nice fit.

Overall, I do like the sweater though and I am steadily loosing weight, so some day it will fit me better.


Wookie also had to try it on and of course he looks good in orange!

  1. I like!! I'm not designer enough to think to turn a shrug into a cardi, but that is awesome.

  2. I like the rib design a lot, and the color looks good on you, too!
