New Sweaters

in Knit and Tonic - Something Red, Wendy Bernard

SomethingBlack7
So, here it is- a completed Something Red. In my case, it's black, and I'm pretty happy with it. It's fuzzy, warm, and comfortable. In fact, I wore it out yesterday with BFF in one of the snowstorms we've been having. While we were sitting in our restaurant eating, I was beyond warm! Part of it was that the heat was up really high, but the other part was the warmth of the sweater. I even went into IKEA without a coat-just the sweater and was fine with the walk from the car to the store.

The one thing I wish I would have done was make the smallest size instead of the second size. I think I am still learning my 'new' body a little when it comes to knits and what size I should make. This one fits well, but just not perfectly, ya know?SomethingBlack6


Pattern: Knit and Tonic's Something Black
Yarn: Valley Yarns Florence – Black
Needles: Knit Picks Options size 7
Notes: I made the size Small (the second size) and did not make many mods to the pattern. The only mod I made was to pick up more stitches in the underarms and then to continue decreasing the sleeves until I was happy. It's nice and cozy!!
