Ta da! August Augusta in August

Today is August 31 and I've finished the August Augusta in August. Just in time since today's the last day of the month. I'm posting these crappy pictures; I'll get some better ones taken soon, and next time, I'll avoid the baggy t-shirt and take some pics with the cardigan buttoned, too. But you can at least get the drift. I'm happy with the finished product and am grateful that this sweater took me only five weeks to complete. May every other sweater I ever make go as quickly!





Like I've done with my other sweaters, I'll do a complete lesson learned soon. Until then, thanks for all the support, especially to Kathy Zimmerman who is teaching me so well to make garments that actually fit.

  7. All of your posts about this sweater have been wonderful and a great inspiration. It is a truly stuning piece of knitting. I have fit issues similar to yours, and I'm going to learn back neck shaping and rewrite the patterns to fit. Thank you!

  8. Shelly, thank you so much for the kind words. I am happy to share all my experience, strength, and hope (as they say in Alanon!)about making ample sweaters. If I can help you make sweaters that fit you, please let me know. And thanks so much for reading my blog!
