Yeah!!! I have successfully crocheted this piece. I have a few pictures of it but here’s my critique.
Yarn: Berroco Merino, color 8532 which is kind of an orange red
Pattern: Short N Sweet from Stitch N Bitch Happy Hooker
Hook: Bamboo hook size H.
Caution, if you have the first edition, you will see errors in the written instructions. The chart however is correct. The pattern was fairly easy to memorize and shaping was minimal. I did modify the sleeves by only doing 4 rounds instead of the 8 the pattern specifies. I’d been reading on other blogs that if you crochet the full 8 rounds, the sleeves end up looking bell shaped.
Thanks for the kind comments about my first doula experience. It’s nice to know that women appreciate my efforts. I’m going to a doula meeting tonight to meet the other doulas. Should be a lot of fun. Matt and I are going to dinner before the meeting. Yeah!!!
I was going to start knitting a new sweater but I decided I want to finish those socks that have been on my needles for about a year. Hopefully, I can finish them soon and I can get to the next sweater.
I discovered the library again this morning. My friend Missy wanted to pick up some books at the Library in 4S Ranch and I signed up for a library card. I got two knitting books, “Never knit your man a sweater” and “One skein”. Hopefully this cuts down on the knitting books that I buy. I can open my own library lol…
