Here is the finished "Drew Sweater", which I knit for my Dad. The pattern was written and the sweater (vest) designed by "Marly Bird". I had some difficulty understanding the pattern in a few spots, so there are what I think are a few mistakes.
"Peabody" sweater, designed by Leila Raabe for Brooklyn Tweed's Wool People. I modified the design, by making the pullover into a cardigan.
ravelry. It is hard to see in the picture, but the buttons are clear crystals.
Fit to Flatter Recipe. The pattern was custom written to fit me, and only me. This is the Back, and you can see a whole lot of body shaping going on. Amy Herzog has developed this fabulous software, that will custom write a knitting pattern to fit anyone. You just plug in your measurements and swatch information, and it spits out a pattern perfect for you, without any math involved. You can see that I am using the "Peabody" lace design again, but this time it is for ME. It is moving along quickly, and since it is part of Amy's Knit-a-long (KAL), I'm hoping to have it finished by the first of the year.
I hope your Holiday Season is off to a great start! Mine will be too, once I brave the drive home and can tuck into the sofa for some great TV and a whole lot of knitting. Happy Knitting . . . . . .
