My Latest Knitting Project...

To knit... Or... to sew?  That is always the question when I find myself with free time...  Although, if I am being honest, most of the time I sew during the day and knit at night.  No sleep for the eternal crafter!  This weekend though, with the end of my knitting project in sight... I decided just to knit...
Here is the pattern I used... From Vogue Knitting Magazine(spring/summer 2011)... View 3
Super cute!  I did change the yarn weight from a [4] to a [2]... so I also had to go up two needle sizes.  I find by doing this... I can create the same look without the bulk, and the garment lays on the body better...
I love the detail around the neck and sleeves...

Today I wore it layered with a denim shirt... cute and comfy...

I think this sweater might just need a twin in a different color... I don't usually remake something, but this sweater was pretty easy... and a good fit!

Happy knitting!
