|New green sweater. You can see more of the scarf here.|
Enough of that walk down memory lane of childhood. And into knitting. When I saw the pattern for this sweater on Ravelry I decided that I was going to knit it.
I think it is because I have no idea what to do when I change gauge and yarn for a project and have to decrease and a lot of other stuff.
But, I am so lucky to have a friend that is a mathematic goddess. She did the math for me. And I am truly thankful to her for that.
So I found my green stashed yarn and gave the sweater a try. If it did not turn out as I wanted, I could just use it on cold days under a jacket.
I used several green colors. To not get a too visible transition between them I altered them by knitting one row of each color for some rows to sort of glue them together. I think it worked just fine.
And as it turned out - the sweater became my favorite. Such a wonderful design. Big enough to not be tight and tight enough to not be big. Get it?? LOL!
I have already knitted another one and has started a bright red one too. Finally a sweater that fit, is warm, not too warm and that I really enjoy wearing. How many colors should I knit? Those who wait will see....
With good friends you can´t loose
