|I swear, both sleeves are the same length :)|
Thankfully, I did still manage to work during the 4 months of being ill, and when I was feeling okay, I did a bit of sewing and some knitting. The above sweater is proof :)
The pattern is Francis Revisited that I found for free on Ravelry. I did change the pattern a bit. I knitted it longer, did rib knit on the sleeve edges and bottom, and added a turtle neck to it. I knit it on size 10 needles and used a wool/mix blend from Berroco. I bought the yarn a long time ago, and I cannot remember the "name" of it. I knitted a medium size, and it fits great. It is a long, tunic length that will look good w/ skinny jeans, straight skirts, and other slacks.
I love knitting sweaters. They take me a while, but the end result is worth the time and effort. I want to knit a pretty lace-weight shawl out of some Kid Silk Haze that I have had for quite some time. I just need to find a free pattern on Ravelry to utilize. I am also knitting a basket weave scarf for the guy who does my hair. It will be a late Christmas present, because I know I will not have it done in time.
Next on the blog docket is a pretty skirt that just needs the snaps placed on it, and the hem done. I also have two refashions that I did in September that I never got to blog about.
I pray everyone is doing well!
Take care and God Bless.
