Yesterday while I was looking through my blog for a date on when I actually knit a sweater I was repairing, I came upon my first "Bet You Thought I Forgot How To Blog" in July 2006. There's nothing too interesting on that post, I just thought it was noteworthy that I am actually an on-and-off blog slacker, starting just months after I began posting!
Here is the sweater I was fixing up:
It is the first sweater I ever knit, a "Ribby Cardi." This pattern was published by Bonnie Marie Burns of Chic Knits. I knit it for my sister Jen, beginning back in September 2005. I posted updates about it in September 2006 (Twice), October 2006, and finally in Feb 2007 - a pic of Jen modeling the original sweater:
Since fashions and bodytypes have changed a little since then, I added about 4 inches to the bottom, and 1.5 inches to the sleeves (yes, I still had the original yarn leftovers) and its ready to go again!!
I have knit and sewed a good number of items since I last posted. I think I'll slowly try to catch the blog up to speed. Tomorrow's post...Central Park Hoodies.
