Q&A with D. Hoffmaster

SherBear1990 asked:
Oh My goodness, that is sooo pretty!
D. Hoffmaster answered:
Thank you very much! If I'm not mistaken, I believe we were taking this Craftsy course at about the same time, as I recognize your picture. Did you enjoy the course and have you started/completed the second cardigan in the class yet? I'm just beginning the second sweater, so I will see how it goes! Thank you again!
SidraG asked:
Beautiful. Have you done a lot of knitting? How long did this project take?
D. Hoffmaster answered:
Hello and thank you so much! I've been knitting for about five years now knitting various items, but my true knitting desire has been sweaters. I can't tell you enough how much I learned from this Craftsy course! The sweater took me about 3 weeks to complete. Thank you again.

Thank you! I really enjoyed making this sweater and the Craftsy class with Myra Wood is just superb! I highly recommend it to everyone who enjoys knitting sweaters.
Cathlene asked:
Great sweater. It looks very comfortable. I'm gonig to have to pick up my needles and get mine done now.
D. Hoffmaster answered:
Thank you so much! It was the first sweater I've knitted using Cascade 220 Superwash. It's always a pleasure knitting when the yarn glides through your fingers and the needles like butter. Good luck on getting your sweater completed, and thanks again!
Caroline Hem asked:
Love your sweater. I have just started the course and am learning lots. I am considering my options for the bolero as I don't want a short cardigan. How did you adapt the pattern to make it longer - repeating the lace? I love it, well done. I look forward to having a go at mine.
D. Hoffmaster answered:
Thank you Caroline for the kind words! I am loving this course, and I too, have learned a lot. I wasn't fond of a short cardigan either, so I just continued with the lace. However, I did go up a needle size when I started the lace. Right or wrong, the lace just draped better with the bigger needle size. Good luck with your cardigan, I look forward to seeing it on this site!
