First Knitted Sweater – NellOctober 30, 2005
Debbie Bliss Nell
Yarn: 3 1/4 skeins Cotton-Ease Sugar Plum
Needle: US 5 and US 6
This is a size 6, my daughter wears a size 5. It is a little big and long in the arms, but I think she will grow into it. Purple is her favorite color. I am really impressed with how it turned out. I like how the sweater drapes and I like how soft the cotton-ease is. Why did they discontinue this? Ugh… I keep using up my stash of it too…I guess it is only inevitable that I run out. This sugar plum wasn’t even from my stash. This is from two very generous persons from yahoo groups. Thank you!
I did knit a sweater before this, but I had the increases/decreases wrong as this was before I realized that they slanted in different directions. So, it is in the frog pond. This sweater is my first completed knitted sweater. 🙂
