Knitting Excuses: Part 2

Well, here I am again and it wasn't a month between blogs! Aren't you impressed? I know I am. ;)

I've promised friends and family that I would post pictures of the first sweater I knit so here goes...

Oh wait, that's not the first one!  This is my second sweater. I finished it and added a few extra details (the red edging) to really make it my own.

And now that you can see I know how to follow a pattern and be successful... now I will show you what happens if you don't follow a pattern when you don't know what you're doing.

I can hear you saying "That doesn't look so bad!".  Yes, it does look good, doesn't it? Shall we see what it looks like on the body it was intended for?

Just a touch too big, eh?

I haven't decided what to do with it yet. I haven't the heart to just take it apart.  Maybe I can turn it into a blanket...

But in the meantime, my hubby wants a vest, my daughter wants a purple sweater and my son is undecided.

And my writer's group needs a piece to critique so I'd better put down my needles and get writing!


  1. You did a great job on the sweater! The other one is pretty...yes a bit big, but I bet you can salvage it.

    1. I'm glad I took pictures. If/when I unravel it, I'll remember it. :)
