|My knitted sweater is finished. The pendant is my creation in polymer clay.|
I simply must say: I am so pleased with my new tent. So soft, warm and light. It is like sitting inside feathers. In spite of being alpaca. And I like the color - I do not look alive in grey or brown as the pattern calls for.
I find it a bit boring that we are supposed to wear those colors until next June. Well, a lot of people look amazing in those colors. But I do not.
I saw another knitter on Ravelry who picked up stitches for the sleeves along the front and back.
And that was a great tip - in spite of me unraveling to get the right amount of stitches and the decreases to work.
With some jewelry and a shawl or scarf it actually looks like something I could wear outside amongst other people. LOL!!!
The leaf on the photo is my polymer clay creation made some time ago. It fits the autumn that is nearly here.
I do love my new sweater and that I chose a color I like. I am prepared for hot coffee, snow and a lot of months with dreams of summer. In colors!!!
