Again

I knit Francis....again.

I am so glad I have a sweater that I will wear all the time. If a sweater doesn't fit, or I don't wear it I can not let the yarn just sit in my closet untouched. It makes me sad. It was so worth all the ripping!

Details:
Mods: Long sleeves, 2x2 ribbed collar.
This is a must knit! If you haven't made this one yet, you will not be sorry.

It is absolutely beautiful. I think I may try a sweater for me this spring and I'm going to keep this one in mind.

Your work is beautiful.

Just lovely! I've started one of my own from some frogged malabrigo, but I haven't gotten very far - that's the problem with knitting more than project at a time :-)

katie. ANOTHER great knit. it is really cute and looks fantastic on you.

i can honestly say that i have NEVER frogged an entire sweater. even if it is not being worn... all that work! i love that you can do this!

It's great! I think I'm going to have to make another one of these--with long sleeves, this time. I think it's awesome how you've been able to frog this yarn -twice- until you got something you loved!

It looks sooooo nice on you. I'm always amazed at how much knitting you get done. (I get too distracted by too many projects at one time...) Good for you staying with one thing before going on to another.

Katie Jean said...

man, everything you knit is beautiful, but I really, really like this one! Maybe if I ever knit myself a sweater it will be this one. It looks so cozy and practical!

Just chiming in that I love your sweater and the way it looks on you!

Hilary said...

Oh, it's fantastic! The deep ribbing on the sleeves looks great. The whole thing looks great, actually!

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

I pretty much want every single sweater you knit. Could you just start making two of everything? I'm an XS. :) I guess I'll settle for the beautiful pictures.
