Xoxo hugs and kisses Xoxo



Once upon a time there was a girl who never had a hand knitted sweater, so she looked near and far for the perfect match to put on her body. Not to far she found it! then she went on her quest for the yarn and needles to make it. After sweat and tears she finely finished it! she tried it on and it was the perfect fit as it hugged and kissed her curves. I don't know how long it took me to make but I finally took some pictures of my first knitted sweater that I was making as a group sweater knit along. The color I wanted to be different then the traditional fisherman sweater. The only thing I wished I did different was making it a little longer. This sweater did not take much yarn at all...my worries about the yarn not giving was not the case.In fact I had 1 skein left over! I did not do any fancy ways of making the sweater. It was made the traditional way. front, back and both sleeves, blocked and sew the pieces together. If you are interested in the pattern its a old leaflet from leisure arts, that my mother had on hand. I posted a pic also. If you know me I am easily fascinated with anything knitted and crochet. I love being inspired by other peoples knitted garment. Here are a few pics that I Found that just have to be posted on my blog and shared with you.
