I recently finished knitting my first sweater ever. It’s a cool batwing style sweater that I knit in a pretty wool alpaca mix. I learned lots about finishing and seaming…but found I still have to learn about sizing. It’s a few sizes too large, and the chunky wool doesn’t help either. So this sweater won’t be modeled anytime soon, but here’s a peek:

Undaunted, I started on a cardigan called ‘Bianca’ from my favourite Rowan magazine. This one has beads and is knit in a lovely 4 ply wool. Let’s hope I get the tension right this time.
