Christina

About a year and a half ago, I was watching Friends and Christina Applegate was guest starring. She was wearing this fantastic sweater, and I wanted it. Bad. I had just completed knitting my first successful sweater, and thought I could knit hers as well.

I even went out and bought some yarn.
Then I lost my nerve.
I heard the voice. You know what I mean. The voice that tells you when something is going to be too hard, and you can not possibly do it.
So, I knit something else.


I still have not forgotten about that sweater, so I decided to ignore the voice, and give it a go anyway. So, I am knitting that sweater for myself, and writing a pattern to share with you.



You can see a very tiny picture of the sweater here. This was all I could find.
I also want to thank Hilary for all of her support and encouragement. I don't know what I would do without my knitting sisters!

What I can see from that tiny picture looks like a sweater I would like. I know nothing about designing my own sweater at this point but I will say I admire you for giving it a try, I can't wait to see what you come up with. I am sending good knitting vibes your way for success on this project.

I do that all the time....fantasize about making something I see on TV or in the movies. You actually did it! I especially love the detail on how you finished the bottom! Can't wait to see it on you and see the pattern, too!
