|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Casual, Retro / Vintage, Cute|
What materials did you use? Watch the class all the way through first, perhaps while SWATCHING. This will help you figure out if the gauge is going to work for your size. Keep moving forward with the slower parts because the color work part is coming...and it's great. Watch the hem video several times and keep it up while attempting with TV off and no one around...just my two cents.
What are you most proud of? The original pattern uses squirrels and I wanted to put Boo chasing the squirrels. I couldn't get the proportions right so I just put Boo in the yoke running. I liked the chart because it looks like he's running which he does with utmost joy.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? I kept going when I was frustrated with a couple of issues related to operator error, not the class instruction; I had problems with a yarn dye lot issue, I had problems with my first color-work choice, and I had problems deciding on the pattern for the yoke and kept trying different ideas. I persevered to get the sweater to look the way I wanted it to look.
