*sung to the tune of my first lover by gillian welch*
i know i’ve been dropping hints for a while that i’m working on my first sweater. i haven’t blogged because the back of a sweater isn’t all that exciting. now the front left – which is what this picture is of – that’s where it’s at ;) really though, bits and pieces just aren’t that blog worthy, so this is all you get until we almost reach the end.
pattern: drops cardigan that i first fell in love with here, ravelry link here. i’m making the lighter weight.
yarn: tahki tweedy alpaca – from my enabler flo.
size: i’m making the medium. we’ll see how that goes. i put the back up to a sweater i like and it looks fine.
what was your first sweater and how did it turn out (links would be good!)? i must admit to having one languishing from very very early knitting days… a cardigan in lamb’s pride bulky from when i had no idea what i was doing. it needs to be 1) ripped and 2) dyed some color other than carnation pink.
have a great day! it’s sunny and cold here in pgh and i’m planning to get outside for a walk.
