Last night the first sleeve was finished on my Brier Island sweater. I love it. How weird is it that so far, I’ve made (or almost made) two sweaters and love them both? That’s one of the reasons I was hesitant to make a sweater — the fit! It will happen I’m sure . . I will make a sweater that I’m not pleased with but if I’m so “not pleased” with it that I won’t wear it, I’ll unravel it and use the yarn for something else. How’s that for cheap entertainment? So . . if you’re not making a sweater because you’re afraid you won’t like it . . that excuse is no good . . come up with another one! 🙂
If I don’t get that sleeve finished today, I will get it finished tomorrow. We don’t have much cold weather left in this area and I want to wear it at least once this winter. As soon as I finish it, I will soak and block it so it may be a week or so before you see a photo of me wearing it.
Laura Aylor is the designer of this sweater and so far, I’ve really liked her designs.
