What I'm about to say may sound like a humble brag. And, okay, it kind of is: I didn't have any chance to do any knitting posts over the past winter because I was too busy finishing my biggest knitting project to date- my first sweater.
I made it during the course of about six weeks as part of a free workshop at Lion Brand Yarn Studio (which I'd highly recommend if you're in the NYC area and have any interest in knitting).
There were definitely some ups and downs along the way, including having to rip out and redo quite a few rows of the eyelet pattern near the neck.
The end result came out looser and with a much wider neckline than the pattern intended, but I actually kind of like the slouchy fit. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. It's not perfect, but it's not too shabby for a first attempt (humble brag #2?).
And just because I can't resist, here are a few pictures of the sister beagles during their second visit with each other:
