New Sweater Tuesday

in Custom Knits - Tang, Wendy Bernard

 I did promise a new sweater, right? So, here is Tang. I'm really liking it! I do like set-in sleeves, but I also love top-down, soTang_modeled this really is the best of both worlds. It's more fitted than the raglans usually are and also a little more classic. I have a feeling I'll be making a bunch of these. I already have a design floating around in my head with some of this and some of that. 

Here I am modeling it at Hooter's. My friends won a wing party for getting 25

restaurant stamps in a passport for Hooter's 25th Anniversary. Who can pass up free wings?! Certainly not me. And they were yummy! BTW–who else thinks my boobs look monstrously huge in that pic?

Pattern: Custom Knits -  Tang
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers – 9453
Needles: Knit Picks Options &  Addi Turbos size 7 & 8
Notes: I followed the pattern to a T-no mods. It's a great fit and would recommend it to anyone to try!

2 sweaters already in the past few months? I need to get on the ball, LOL. I love that color of purple. It looks fabulous. Maybe a side-gig @ Hooters is in order? LOL
