My first NaKniSweMoDo Sweater took me two months instead of one. Hopefully, I can make up some ground with tanks/vests in the summer months. Anyway, since Carolyn insists, here's the recap (day by day recap on ravelry)!
Basically, I LOVE this sweater! I just steam blocked it, and I definitely did a better job of pressing the left cuff (right to you) then the right cuff, so the right cuff drove me a little crazy all day.
The only major modification I made was in the sleeves. Instead of knitting them and then attaching them as called for in the pattern, I picked up stitches to add them because I was concerned about making sure they were the correct length. The two things I usually miss on fit wise are sleeve length and body length. I extended the body length slightly on this one, too, using a favorite t-shirt as my guide.
Overall, I love this sweater! The fit is great and I really like the yarn, Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed . I'm usually pretty sensitive to the itch factor in wool, but I wore this sweater all day with just a short-sleeved t-shirt under it and I wasn't bothered by it at all. I think this is definitely the most wearable sweater I have made to date.
And, for your amusement, I share with you what happens when you take self-timer pics in the presence of a toddler.
