Hello everyone! I've been MIA for a while due to work (it's exam time for summer students), but hopefully life will be back to normal by the end of the week. I am very much looking forward to kicking my feet up for a few days before diving head first into all the sewing I'm behind on.
The only project I've managed to complete lately is another 3-hour sweater. This is my third one, and possibly my favourite. I love the soft minty green shade of the yarn and I extended the bottom ribbing which I think gives a more flattering fit for my body type. On my last sweater, I made the mistake of not switching back to small needles for the top ribbing (the pattern doesn't actually tell you to), but I fixed that on this one and am much happier with the neckline. I opted for a little yarn tie at the neck instead of a button, but I may change it since the tie doesn't like to stay done up. Other than that, I followed the original instructions (a lot of the "3-hour sweater's" you see use a modified version of the pattern).
Anyone else tried the 3-hour sweater? (If not, you can get the pattern for free here). I've never heard of anyone actually completing it in 3 hours, but it is a very quick knit. Perhaps the 10 hour sweater would be a more correct name. It's my go-to quick vintage knit at the moment. I'm torn about what to knit next though. Any suggestions?
