I thought this sweater was going to be too small for me but the perfect size for my mom. After blocking it and sewing on a button, it looked bigger so I got nervous that it would suddenly be too big for her. And she tried it on and it was definitely too big on her but now it fits me perfectly! I was a little disappointed because I was excited to give it to her, but I am also looking forward to wearing it myself.
I knit this with Classic Wool by Ella Rae in the plum colorway (#45) and it looks great. I have no idea what this button is from but it seemed to be the best button in my stash.
As I was knitting this I decided that I am not a sweater knitter. But after putting it on, I think I’m changing my mind. There were a lot of long purl rows on this project, but maybe a pullover would be more my speed. It might have taken me over a year to make this, in actual knitting time it was fairly quick. I can’t wait to wear this.
