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!!
