Do you know who this is??That is my neighbor trying to figure out my mess of knitting for the lace border sweater that I am knitting. After finally finishing the 2nd sleeve I then placed all the pieces of the puzzle on my dining room table and knew in a instant that there was no way I could figure out the next move. Lucky for me I called a friend (the lovely lady in the picture) who actually knows how to knit. I only asked that she help me understand the directions but I was truly lucky and she knitted me out of never never land. When she asked, " How much do you want me to knit?" I said, " As much as your willing to do" and then she magically put the sweater together. Thank you very much Yarnhog. I couldn't have done it without you. Note to all of you kind hearted knitting enthusiasts who give knitting kits to friends - they may need your help!
I sewed the sleeves and sides together and then I tried it on.
Isn't the border pretty?
Well you may be wondering, Why I have a Teddy Bear modeling my very first knitted sweater with sleeves.
Could it be that it is 85 degrees and too hot to wear sleeves?
Could it be that I am having a bad hair day?
Could it be that it ITCHES????
Yes, this beautiful blue yarn that I loved to knit with itches something awful. Kinda like poison ivy with a rash on top. Yeah super duper itches. Does it go away if I put it in the closet? Do I wash it in magic de-itching soap?
Do I wear something under the sweater to shield my skin?
WHAT Do I Do?
