Adam Made It! πŸ€—

It is now official, after the husband did a thorough fitting last night and did some muscle flexing in front of a mirror wearing Adam πŸ˜„ – I haz knit my second sweater! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

I haz conquered knitting (and seaming!) dark grey yarn, haz conquered working with snakelike implements of torment a.k.a. circular needles, conquered despair and the temptation to just give up and knit an entirely new and different pattern, and learned that maybe it’s wise to knit a size or 2 bigger than what the tape measure tells you to πŸ˜†πŸ˜‰


To my arsenal of knitting knowledge I also now add familiarity with working a raglan sleeved sweater and, a little exposure to cabling (I think), because the raglan sleeve called for a little style twist:

Phew! πŸ™ƒ

To tell you honestly though, I am convinced that my execution of the raglan sleeve cabling (?) was much better the second time around. The gaps of the pattern were smaller, tighter and uniform as opposed to the first try so … I guess you could say it was a blessing in disguise πŸ˜€

Anyways, now it’s time for a quick & fancy victory dance – all together now!

Wasn’t that absolutely empowering and motivational? πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Next on the knitting horizon: a sweater for my daughter that involves a simple motif. Stay tuned! 😘

  1. Great job on finishing an actual wearable sweater (I have made a few in my life but haven’t always been totally happy with them). I am not playing that ‘song’ – someone shared it on Facebook and after about 30 seconds I knew it wasn’t something I wanted to have stuck in my brain πŸ˜€

    1. I have. A lot! LOL XD I got my daughter into it too by making her choose the yarn color and the design from a few options that I bookmarked.

      Knitting sweaters takes A LOT of time though and I do miss crochet in that it’s quicker to finish. So right now I’m thinking I might crochet something real quick first before diving into my 3rd sweater project πŸ˜€

  3. Wow, Adam looks great! I bet your husband will be very proud to wear that sweater, since you made it with your two very own capable hands. I am so proud of you for not giving up. You go girl!
