I might be making an ugly sweater.
I bought the yarn in 2014, started another pattern twice, and am this far on my first attempt on the second pattern.
It's supposed to look like this when it's finished:
It's The Weekender by Andrea Mowry, and I'm making it from Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter, which, I tell you, I will never knit with again. It is beautiful, I love the rustic feel and look of it, and it's woolen spun so it's light as air, but it BREAKS. Tug a little to pull the yarn through a stitch, and it BREAKS. Pain in the you know where.
Anyway...mine looks like a big square with small holes for the sleeves. I'm to pick up and knit 60 stitches around each armhole, but it's going to be a tight squeeze.
AND, do you see the line running up the middle of the front? There is one in the middle of the back too. A design element.
This is mine:
It's all wobbly and the stitches to the left of the line are stretched out.
I always believe in the magic of blocking.
Sweet Mother of Purl, let it be so.
