As this Friday draws to a close and evening approaches I thought I would bring you along with me on what happens when I make a Sweater!
Here are my tools of the trade. Well some of them anyway. My tablet is full of patterns that I have written down in a language that only I can understand! 🙂 I have come up with my own form of shorthand. Anyone else would look at it and wonder how on earth you were suppose to follow any of this! lol
This is part of the pattern process that I use. This is where I figure out what I want for a stitch and what size the sweater is going to be. You can see it does remind you of a sewing pattern.
Here I have the Front of the Sweater finished. It does take me a while to finish each piece for this sweater. The making of this Sweater from start to finish takes me approx 25 hrs for a size Med. It does depend on the size of the Sweater as to how long it takes me to finish it. I love being able to try out different colors and stitches to see what I like or I think someone else might like. It is amazing and fun when you start to play around with colors and you find out what ones blend well together. You sure can come up with some crazy combinations!
At the moment I am in the process of making the sleeves so you will have to stay tuned to find out what they are going to look like and what happens next! Thanks for taking a look and hope you tune in for the next part! 🙂
