Off the Needles

Made up the pattern as I came to each section.
Bound off with - Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off But I only did this extra yarn over every 2nd or 3rd stitch.

I am going to work on writing up this pattern, re-knitting and publishing it.

On the Needles

started Thurs July 25th

Wicked Smaht by Fancy Pants Fiber

Heartbreak Shawl by Lisa Mutch
I’m thoroughly enjoying this!! Thank you Lisa Mutch. Go check out her patterns published under Northbound Knitting.


I re-swatched for my sweater. I got a bra-fitting at Nordstrom's and highly recommend that you do this if you haven't in awhile (or ever). I still need to take my measurements, wash my swatch and get moving!
