{Actual Knitting!}

First off, thank you so much to everyone who responded to my post yesterday and I encourage everyone who hasn't to read the comments and leave one yourself.  It's so inspiring to hear positive messages about our self-image, isn't it?  Right after I was finished the post I went to the gym. I am SUPER sore today but am ever more super proud of myself for finally going.  A month off reeeaallllyy makes a difference. lol

Anyway! I promised you actual knitting!! I was trying to remember why it had been so long since I had an FO to show you and I think it's because I've been waiting on yarn to finish a couple of projects that I started recently.

This project is for my 7 year old Nephew and I am very pleased with how it came out!

I used the pattern Vroom From Knitty Winter '09 issue, but modified to look a little bit more grown up.  I used Encore Worsted for the main colour and just some scrap blue in my stash for a small one row stripe in the 1x1 ribbing to add a touch of interest.   I'm not concerned about the size anymore thanks to everyone who helped!!  I hope he likes it!

Next up? a Quick knit for me!!


  1. Sarah - The sweater is fantastic! You make me wish I could knit. I think I could learn; however, I have no patience waiting on the produced product. :o) Thanks for sharing. Happy Tuesday!
