Shalom Revealed

Shalom has been completed. (Well, it hasn’t been blocked yet, but it just came off the needles about 10 minutes ago)

The backside:

I love it, and it fits pretty well. The sleeves are a little looser than I would like, but that is alright.

It hangs a little crooked on me… I need to learn how to knit for people with scoliosis, apparently, but all in all I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

It’s so comfy cozy. I can’t wait to cast on my next sweater!

  1. Looks great! My sleeves turned out looser than I would have liked, too. I picked up ten stitches under the arm, and I think that was about ten too many! Someday I’d like to take the sleeves out and redo them, but with so many projects in queue, that will be a while. I actually haven’t blocked mine yet either. I wear it too much to give it up! πŸ™‚

  2. Yeah, I’d definitly take out those 10 stitches! I also would have decreased more below the elbow… very baggy on me. But that’s also ok, it makes for a very squishy warm sweater. and hey, we still haven’t seen yours.

  3. Oh wow! I love the red. You might actually like the little baggy-ness so you can wear it over things, that’s what I’ve liked. Gotta get blocking on mine though! It curls under in front. Love it.

  4. Wow, Hannah. Um, no it’s definitly a shirt that has a lacy back. Ha! But now that I look at it, it definitly looks like a tattoo!

  5. Oh my word! I am so glad you responded to Hannah. I was having a hard time breathing there for a minute! Did only Hannah and I think that was a Tat??? Oh, The sweater is darn gorgeous!

  6. I’m with the others I thought you were revealing your new tattoo— that is one convincing top!! Now to the sweater, it looks great and the color is great too. πŸ™‚
