While I knit one more sweater, I have time to think about my obsession with them.
I like sweaters! No, a better way to put it would be to say I love sweaters! I love knitting them, I love wearing them (and I do wear them a lot!) and I love giving them to those I love!
I love many kinds of sweaters, in many kinds of yarn but I have a preference for cold weather sweaters.
I can never have too many, so I go on knitting away! It's also a great way to put a dent in my stash... ;-)
Here's the latest warm addition to my winter wardrobe.
It's a short cropped sweater (cute with a skirt or skinny jeans) that I adapted slightly from a Norah Gaughan pattern in Vogue Knitting, Fall 2000 . I haven't seen it on Ravelry, so, I took a picture of the original to show you what it looked like and I'll try to put it on Ravelry. I haven't found out how to do it yet... Update! I've put the pattern on Ravelry!
I added a big turtleneck to make it warmer and because I thought it would be more practical considering the climate around here.
It was a quick, easy and satisfying pullover to knit. Chunky yarn and an easy pattern= almost instant gratification! Who doesn't need that once in a while?
