Knit 1, Purl 1


My BFF Robbie Payne showed me a Cowl she was knitting. I loved it and went right up to the studio and got yarn to knit it.

I thought it would take about 2 skeins.

When I could see it would only take a little more than 1 skein I changed course.

I had 6 skeins of this yarn so I decided to knit a sweater.

It is going “relatively” fast since it is knit on size 15 needles.

The cowl part was knit on a circular needle, but I decided to knit the front and back flat as I knew it would hang better with side seams.

I am “knitting this by the seat of my pants” and making some of the calculations as I go.

I’m hoping it will be one of those big oversize sweaters that are in style this year.

However when you knit this way it could end up to be a body hugging  sweater to wear under a jacket!

Only time will tell, so stay tuned if you want to hear “the rest of the story”!
