Well, it is the last day of January. I am excited to begin a new month of my sweater challenge, and I am glad I made it to the end of the January Sweater today. I have a few last minute changes I will be adding to the pattern tonight. Little things, like the buttons seemed too small at 5/8" so I think I will list 7/8" as an option, and I think 6-7 buttons may be a better choice than 5. But all in all, I am very happy with my pattern and my three samples. I do regret getting behind on sample number three, the size small, because I lost my model yesterday and didn't complete the sweater until this evening, but c'est la vie. It is done and I've learned a lot.
I want to thank my gorgeous friend Joell for posing for these lovely pics of my sample the other day. I am so lucky to know such beautiful and generous people!
The sweater knits up beautifully in a size small, medium, or large. Sadly my mannequin can't vamp, but here is a photo of the small sample. I am still looking for more test knitters, so let me know if you would like to make this free pattern.
Now on to February! I am thinking hearts and lace...
