Just in time for winter to be over
I started the Penny sweater last winter (Rowan pattern, Biggy Print Yarn, Pool Party colorway). I saw the yarn and sample at a Super Bowl sale last year. The sweater took no time to knit due to the super bulky yarn and large needles but it sat in pieces in my craft room for a whole year as I avoided piecing it together. I bit the bullet today, printed off mattress stitch instructions and VOILA! I have a new sweater. It's kind of rough around the edges but I think it supposed to look that way. I used the lovely shawl pin purchased by my husband from Scout's store to close it (Click picture for close up.)
Last weekend's knitting:
I finished Clog # 1 (Fiber Trends Pattern, Big Kureyon and Paton's Merino yarn) and side one of the Trellis bag for ITEIII.
