Single minded knitting
I went through that cast on o’holic phase, can’t commit, wanted it all, but I’m done. Now I’m a single minded knitter. Oh sure, I occasionally stray from a project with a little spinning, but for the most part I’ve become so impatient to have a finished object that once yarn goes on needles I can think of little else but the day it comes off. . . Hence the 7 day sweater. Followed up by the one day sweater. First came the bizarre two way sweater from Vogue. Here’s how the cowl neck version looked on the needles (front)
My burning need to solve the mystery of this bizarre garment drove me to finish the sweater in exactly 7 days. I cast it on Monday night at Chicks with Sticks and the following Monday night I was wearing it. It came out okay, but I ended up making a little modification. Here’s how it looked, knit directly from the pattern.
Cowl neck side:
It’s kind of hard to tell from this photo, but the waist band cut my chest in half, and then the helpful v dissected it yet again, having the most amazing flattening affect I’ve ever seen, basically, I didn’t like it either way. . . so, I knit a little triangular insert. I just cast on 18 stitches and worked in the K1, P1 rib with decreasing on each side until I got myself a little triangle, and here’s the final result.
I had some yarn left over, so I decided to cast on (one Tuesday morning) the Anthrogologie inspired sweater.
