rocking the big three-seven
December 16, 2008
Here’s a little sweater I started in September. It’s the sort of quick and easy knit that should be finished in a couple of days but I’m a much better starter than a finisher. And projects are much more satisfying if they languish in a corner mere inches of being complete for a month or two, aren’t they? Oh, maybe that’s just me, then. Never mind!
Specs: top down raglan worked in various laceweight-ish scraps on a 6mm circular needle. The red and dark gray are handspun (Brown Sheep mill ends from Sheep Shed Studio), light gray is recycled wool/mohair, black is a mystery fibre (I think also a wool/mohair blend), a tiny bit of a Value Village score from aeons ago. I still have a skein as big as my head. I wanted it to be messy and hole-y, so I added a yarn-over whenever I felt like it and also dropped a few stitches (I wish I’d dropped more). It fits pretty well without blocking but I’m not certain it will be all that durable or that it won’t stretch all out of shape with wear. We’ll see.
I’ve decided to jump on the 365 days bandwagon, because I miss the routine of taking photos of myself every day. Today is day one. So far I haven’t missed a day!

I love the sweater! It looks good on you.
Happy Birthday Jodi! The sweater looks great and I’m looking forward to seeing your photos throughout the year!
Cool sweater! Happy Birthday!!! Also thanks for the heads-up for the 365 photo thing.. I’ll keep an eye out for your photos! I usually suck at “alongs” (seeing as that I’ve bombed TWICE on the ABC-Along) but I’d like to at least try to do this one… I really ought to use my camera more.
Happy birthday, Jodi! 37 is but an ancient memory to me…..
Indeed, you are rockin’ it in babe-alicious fashion. Hope you have a wonderful 37th year!
Happy Birthday! Love the sweater. You do realize those are Georgia Bulldog colors, don’t you? :-)
Happy birthday! Love your sweater, the colours are great.
