Watch: Michael Kors
I started this sweater what…two years ago??? Yeah, umm…I got distracted, let’s call it that! Me Made May this year kicked my butt into gear – I really wanted to finish this sweater to wear with some of my dresses, and I’m finishing up a Ginger skirt right now that goes perfectly with this color. A cropped sweater like this really pairs well with a fit-and-flare dress.
I blame it on the fact that I HATE seaming sweaters. Hate hate hate. Which is crazy, because I sew, but there’s something about sewing up sweaters that’s just plain NOT FUN. It’s irrational, I know, whatever. So this guy sat in my knitting bag for the last year, just waiting to be blocked and sewn together. But now that it is, I think it’s one of my favorite hand-knit sweaters to date (but my Owls is still my all-time favorite, hands down).
Honestly, not a complicated knit, but I did have to be mindful of where I was with the pattern. I may have done the stitch pattern on the fronts incorrectly – I’m not sure if they’re supposed to mirror each other? I actually noticed it as I finished binding off for the second side. It doesn’t seem necessary to have them mirror, but if that floats your boat, it’s totally possible.
I lucked out on the buttons, too! White buttons would have looked way too twee, and these pink ones are a pretty close match.
Is Me Made May motivating you to finish any WIPs that are lying around?
