  • TAG TEAM SWEATER PROJECT : THE EXCHANGE HAS BEEN MADE

    I was cutting it close.  Friday, February 28th, I was supposed to send off Karen's Trillium body, that was my deadine, but I wasn't quite ready.  I contacted UPS and was relieved to find out that I had until noon on Saturday the 1st to ship for a Monday the 3rd delivery.  

    Karen's Trillium arrived in Berkeley the same day as I received the sleeves for my Lila sweater.  It was a fun mail day for both of us!

     

     

    Since I was so busy working on Trillium I had not even started on Lila, I had only done swatches.  Thank goodness Lila is a fairly simple knit, basically all stockinette except for a small garter border along the hem.  I did run into one little hiccup but after consulting with the knitting community I decided to proceed without making any changes.  I am also little nervous about the size I chose.  I am a 33" bust but casted on for the 35" size since I like the look of the sweater that had 3" of positive ease on the model.  After reading Felicia's blog post I am doubting my decision.  

     

    I am about .5" away from joining my sleeves (thank you, Karen!) to the body and would probably be at that point by now but we had a sweet little surprise yesterday morning that kept me busy.  But I feel confident that I will be wearing Lila this Saturday at VK Live

    This crazy idea that we had to do the Tag Team Sweater Project was quite daunting in the beginning, I wasn't sure if agreeing to do it was the right decision.  Would I really be able to make the deadline?  Will Karen be happy with my knitting?  Let me just say that I am SO happy I said yes to the project!  I have had a blast and have learned so much.  Thank you to my knitting buddy, Karen Templer!
