It’s been a week since I sent off my latest project for outside publication. I can’t stop thinking about it. I still have little piles of the ends lying around the house because I can’t bear to throw them out.
I don’t know if it’s appropriate to be so vocal about loving one of your own designs or not. I’ve designed very few adult-sized sweaters and this one has taken my breath away.
It’s a must have. Since the magazine keeps the sweater that means I need to lay my hands on some affordable chunky alpaca. For the sample, I used Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky which performed admirably. I’m curious to knit it out of the same again to see how it holds up to wear. I’m always cold in the winter, so it would be nice to be cozy in an alpaca sweater.
Keep your eyes on the lookout for the Winter 2011 edition of Knit Simple. I can’t provide any more specific details until it hits the newsstand.
