I've been working on a 1930's jumper with a delicate lace pattern from the yarn I bought back in September. It's been a challenge to do my first lace pattern, and I can honestly say that I've been doing just about as much reverse knitting as actual knitting. However, I am still really pleased with my progress and can't wait to have this sweater finished. I'm at the point where the pattern says I should start the armhole decreases, but I need to decide how much more knitting I want to do before starting the armhole shaping.
|Here's what the sweater looks like right now.|
|And this is what the pattern should look like.|
|I am pointing to my natural waist, showing also that there is |
still some knitting before I can start the armhole shaping.
|A bit more ease than I expected|
|Hehe - this sweater will take forever!|
The pink and orange hat is for my little niece, while the Packers hat is for my cousin's little boy. It was quite delightful to knit something so precious. (I can't wait to someday have my own little ones to knit things for . . . but don't worry, that is not any time too soon)

Oh, and if anyone has any advice on fitting my 1930's jumper, please do share. This is my first time working from a 1930's pattern and I'm a little unsure of myself.
Live in this moment and love life!
