But if at first you don't succeed, go knit something else. So I cast on for Cecily Glowik Macdonald's Streamside Cardi, a cute, summery, buttondown sweater that I've been wanting to try. I'm worried about making it fit; as you may remember, Cecily is my antithesis when it comes to body type.
But so far, so good. My knitting gal pal, Lor has been very encouraging and generous sharing her vast knowledge of knitting mods to help me make this baby fit. Here I am modeling the top of the sweater this morning.
Can I get this done by my nephew's Bar Mitzvah in a few weeks? Maybe yes, maybe no. Regardless, I hope I knit a cute sweater that fits - even if I still won't end up looking like Cecily when I'm finished.
