A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Making a Sweater

that I, a knitter, would actually wear–more than once!–is a challenging undertaking, to say the least. Although you may not want to admit it, folks–me included, no exception–can be awfully picky about our clothes.

Before I start on a project, I spent gobs of time deciding how to make the best style, color and fiber choices, my preference, and what kind of clothes I see myself wearing.  It has to be classic, stylish, and versatile.  Am I asking too much?   What, exactly, do you want in a sweater?

Thankfully for shop sample knitting, I get to try out different styles and yarn.  This Rusted Root is knit up in two days with ends left to weave in, wash, and to block.  More to come.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

(still doesn’t do texting, MySpace, Twitter, StumbleUpon, DiggIt…but caved into Facebook!)
