Or maybe this post title should be this is my stress reliever this winter?

Yes, I knit another sweater...in a matter of weeks.

This was another test knit for Thea, and I think I'm going to break my 1 cardinal knitting rule - never knit the same sweater twice.

Because this sweater is about perfect!

I was a little hesitant - it's a shorter sweater designed to hid the dreaded muffin top.  And I'm not a fan of shorter sweaters.

But with the ribbing, the cable, the long sleeves and the cowl, I was hooked on this one.

So much so, I wore it Friday night.  I wore it Saturday all. day. long.  I thought about wearing it on Sunday to work on the new barn we are putting up (more on that later) but common sense prevailed.  So I wore it Monday as well.

I didn't change the pattern at all.  It's very flattering as written, but could easily be made longer with some waist shaping if you prefer.  I also could have possibly  gone down to a size 34 and had a more fitted sweater, but I wasn't willing to take that gamble.

Details - Chambord by Thea Coleman
Yarn - Felted Tweed Aran
Size - 36
Mods - none

Now it's back to working on the barn 24/7 when we aren't a work.......
