About Me

I'm a forty something mother of two girls ages 17 and 11. I enjoy knitting and figuring skating. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was about 7 and I'm still "figuring out knitting!"

It's finally finished! In January I was part of a Knitting Daily Online KAL for this pattern. It took me way longer than it should have but I finally finished it.

Pattern: Slanting Gretel Tee
Designer: Petra Manis
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Greenline DK
Happiness scale: 4 out of 5
Construction: bottom up raglan

It still needs to be blocked but I think it turned out beautifully. I enjoyed the construction and would do it again. I will definitely get a lot of wear out of this sweater, especially this fall as it starts to get cooler and maybe in the next few weeks as it still hasn't gotten quite warm enough to get out of the sweaters yet. This will be a nice layering piece.
