Who does a practice sweater? ME!
My cozy fall sweater needs sleeves and a few repairs. This very boring brown yarn is acrylic. I'll admit it. Gasp if you must. Think what you will. But, It ain't gonna itch me! And she's machine washable. She's the practice sweater.
The thing about the practice sweater is there is no pressure. Some stitches have been dropped, the buttonhole spacing is not precise, and no one gives her a second glance when I take her out in public to knit . She's just for practice. I haven't been upset about this knit once yet.
Karen from Musings of a mostly self-taught knitter blog, is making a sweater in just about the same color. We are calling them the twin sweaters. Hers is from a gorgeous pattern and mine isn't but they can still be twins. Separated at birth and all that. Go over and admire:)
Amy of knitting.typepad.com wrote a funny, creative post last week. She talks about Bob Costas doing a segment on her Olypmic knitting. It is clever and funny. Go and laugh.
If you love Raggedy Ann and want to see some lovely Raggedy's go over to PurlyGirlPrimitives blog. I bought one last week from her. I bought the one in the lady bug dress. I haven't decided who I'll give her to yet, but she is soooo cute. Go and smile.
(jilly. She cried this monring!)
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
