my first knitted garment!November 17, 2008
Well not exactly my first, but my first wearable knit garment, that’s for certain. Hurrah! I’ve finally graduated from beginning knitter to advanced beginning knitter, but not without a whole lot of trial and error (with the scales tipped toward the error). But oh how happy I am to have finally knitted something that I can actually wear outside of the house! I made this Anthropologie Inspired Shrug, an adorable pattern (and a super fast project, btw!) that I found on Craftser.org.
Inspired by this success, I’m currently attempting to make the funky, chunky “Best Friend Cardigan” from Twinkle’s Big City Knits — a book that contains some of the most gorgeous knitting patterns I’ve ever seen. We’ll see if it doesn’t end up being ripped right back into a humble yarn ball like so many of my other failed attempts at making something too fabulous for my skill set. Gotta have hope, though!
