It’s done it’s done it’s really really done!!! I finished my Clarke Pullover last night and I’m quite pleased with myself, I have to say! The stripes look so nice and even, and the bust measurement came out the way I expected it to, which is even more amazing given that I used worsted instead of DK and had to do math to figure out which size to knit!
It got a little rough on my hands toward the end, because I had to use smaller needles than recommended for the yarn to get the right gauge. Plus I used 12″ circs for the sleeves, which was kind of amazing because they’re faster than DPNs, but my hands were feeling it by the end, just feeling kind of cramped. Still, totally worth it!!
And I’m totally wearing it today, unblocked, because spring is coming quickly and I wanted to wear it at least once before I had to pack it away! My only minor complaint is that it’s a little shorter than I’d like, so when I wash it, I’ll lay it out flat and try to encourage it to stretch out a bit. I’ll let you know how that goes!
The yarn is Lion Brand Jeans in Classic and Vintage, and the best thing about it (besides being really soft) is that I can wear it without a layer underneath and it doesn’t itch!
It’s beautiful 😍 looks great on you too
Thank you so much!! 🙂
You look terrific in it! Great job!
Thank you!! 😀
Awesome! It looks really good, and seems to fit perfectly! I love when sweaters come out the way I expect (hope) they will.
Me too! It’s such a relief– I was scared to try it on until it was done!
Thank you! 🙂
Gorgeous! I love it! Nothing beats a new sweater!
I know! I love it! Now I need to make a couple for spring!
It looks great and the fit looks spot on!
Thank you! It’s pretty darn close to a perfect fit, just needs to be an inch or so longer.
Perfection!! I’ve been on a sock jag the last few days…can’t stop making socks, lol.
Haha, that’s been me for the last few months! It’s kind of nice to knit something other than socks!
I’m sure I’ll feeling that way soon! I have to say, I really love that fleegle heel, so far! I haven’t worn those socks yet….ends weaving hasn’t happened yet, lol. But o have tried them on, and they are comfy!
I need to make a note to try that one!
Amazing! It looks so good on you, a perfect fit
Thank you! 🙂
