Tomten and other projects
Finally getting around to posting here! I've been knitting EZ's designs for a while now, but am just getting around to posting here. The first thing I ever made by EZ was her seamless yoke sweater. Close up of the yoke here. Will have to have hubby take a pic of me wearing it as the one pic I have is really awful! I followed EZ's instructions for the sweater and for the yoke I just got out the graph paper and started seeing what I could create that would fit with the multiple of stitches I had. I love that there are so many possibilities with this sweater. You can use the same "recipe" and tweak it with different yoke designs or colors and give it a totally different look.
Next I tried the "adult" Surprise jacket. I think my mistake was trying to do stripes. I liked the way it looked, but all those ends to weave it, oy! By the time I got to the point of picking up stitches to knit this sleeves, I gave up. Poor thing is still in this state...
Has anyone else had the same problem? Maybe next time I'll try it in a variegated yarn and save myself the trouble.
Now I'm working on a Tomten jacket for a cool kid I know. Hopefully won't run into the same problem with it as I did the surprise jacket!
