What was your inspiration?
To make a beautiful Icelandic sweater to enjoy! The class gave me such a feeling of "You Can Do This"!!! Thank you Ragga for your gentle push to the next step! Love the sweater and all your assistance to make this a fun and great experience in class videos.
What are you most proud of?
I actually did a successful "steek"!!! Like most new to the technique I was scared it would all unravel in the first washing, but seeing how we lock-in those stitches with the crochet method.....well, it all made perfectly good sense. Knitting along step-by-step with Ragga gave me a sense of accomplishment and I have to say I'm very proud of my sweater. Looking forward to those rainy days in the springtime here in Norway! :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch the video several times while you make your swatches. It is a great inspriration and will give you the confidence you will need to complete your sweater. Just watch, relax, and have fun knitting and crocheting your new little gem! :) Happy Crafting!!!!
