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.......
