This does take some time, between measuring and taping and cutting it off of you. Also, my husband was pouring us margaritas at the time, so there was lots and lots of giggling. We had a lot of fun!

What was your inspiration?
I have several sweaters I had knit for myself with some really great ideas, yarn and patterns. They just never fit me the way I had envisioned. What a disappointment. :( When I first watched the videos for this course I knew I had a way to successfully knit for myself, not just socks and shawls, but real wearable knit just for me sweaters, cardigans and tops.
What are you most proud of?
Finally getting this part done.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Give yourself a break, have a "Girls Day In" and plan on having some fun with some friends. I think this will be a great tool in my Craft Studio. She sits there waiting patiently for me to begin planning my next best friend, a silk sweater knit to fit. Get up and do this, it is a wonderful way to see what you look like, and how to make clothes that will flatter your body!
