Inspiration

After working on the commissioned project for a long while on my sick day, I figured I had gotten it to a point where I should be allowed to work on something new. I picked up some knitpicks chroma worsted awhile back in order to make a sweater for Bug. I’ve been itching to use it since long color changes are exactly what I live for in knitting. This sweater is knit vertically rather than horizontally to make vertical stripes on the sweater. It is shaped using short rows. I think it is a fantastic knit for kids, and really wanted to get it done because the pattern only goes up to size 8 and that is what she will be this fall. It feels like it may be a nice quick knit, at least at this point. Bug is eagerly awaiting this one, as she is as fascinated with the colors as I am.
