Hey, look at me! I knit a sweater! I think I’m starting to get the hang of the whole knitting thing. I started with some lovely variegated wool yarn. I knit the whole thing in the round without a pattern. It was a little nerve-wracking, especially toward the end when it looked like the neckline / shoulder area would not wind up shaped like a human at all, but then it all worked out! It was almost unbelievable.
Now, the real reason that I wanted to learn to knit is that I want a dress like the one below on Michelle Obama. I actually saw this dress in a store and IT HAS NO SEAMS! I think that, after one or 2 more projects, I will be able to tackle trying to make a dress like this for myself.
