Even though it’s clearly moving away from sweater weather here on the west coast (*ducks from the snowballs the rest of Canada is throwing at her*), I was drawn in to Andi Satterlund‘s “Selfish Sweater Knit-a-long” this past month.
Internet knit-a-longs by designers you like are pretty much like crack when you become a knitter. The second other knitters start posting pictures of their projects online or on Instagram, you feel like an outsider if you don’t join in. Yes, you could just lurk – but that’s akin to hanging out on the sidelines at the high school dance whilst everyone gets their slow dance on (been there, done that). You need IN on that action, man!
I made the Aiken sweater, which actually shows a daring amount of cleavage if you peer through the lace panel on the front. But it’s all, like, concealed in yarn so you can get away with it without seeming like a trashy ho.
This is how you feel when you finish knitting a sweater. Or when you get a black wine gum. ^^
