whaling sweater in fisherman's woolsince doug just informed me that our daughter is outside, locked in our car, about to die from heatstroke (long story that child services would TOTALLY understand), i'll make this quick. while moving all my knitting projects to my new yarn basket from my parents, i was a little astonished to see just how close to finishing this sweater i was. there it sat, neglected since the winter. i finally took the couple hours i needed to finish up the neck, seam the underarms and weave in the ends. i'm sooo glad i did.
i used my ever favorite lion brand fisherman's wool, and kind of winged the pattern using pointers from elizabeth zimmermann's "knitting without tears" book. every knitter should own this book. it helped me to knit this sweater by size as opposed to pattern, and i couldn't be happier with the fit. i'll be wearing it whenever i can!
