First FO of 2011
I started with this tiny sweater ornament from the Knit Picks catalog as inspiration and somehow ended up with this:
Daughter's sweater, here posing rather awkwardly, is DONE. I give myself a grade of D+ due to major screw ups at every step of the frustrating design process. Everything was frogged and redone at least twice. I HATE the way I steeked and picked up the sleeves and don't even get me started on the way the front design panel is not completely centered. You couldn't pay me to design another knitted anything for anybody. I am not Mozart but I am Yo-Yo Ma, ready to take somebody else's pattern and create a work of art. I'll do the knitting-you do the thinking. Thank you very much.
