My Mint Belle

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Making the sweater to fit me What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you're happy with your gauge swatch. I wasn't absolutely sure if I liked the look of my stitches, but I started anyway. I got almost finished with the project and realized I didn't like how it looked. So, I frogged it and went down a needle size. (That's when I decided to decrease the fronts at a slower rate, as well.) At this point I knew I was on track. Now I love my sweater. We all want to make something we can be proud of. This is such a great class! Thanks, Myra.
