I have had this little sweater and hat set done for about a week now, and I just haven't had a chance to post it. It's a simple raglan sweater from Debbie Bliss and the little hat from Stitch and Bitch. Seaming the sleeves to the body of the sweater the last time I made it gave me so much trouble that I decided to make it again so I could CONQUER it! Now I think I have it figured out. My sewing mind got me so used to thinking that I have to attach everything right sides together, and that's where I had problems last time. With knitting apparently you attach things with wrong sides together. Who knew? Not me. . . but now I do.
And in case you were wondering, that's Lion Brand WoolEase in mushroom. I love the color and the whole-wheat wholesome look of it. Now that I have that pattern mastered, I think I'm going to upgrade my yarn to......(hold your breath).....knitpicks!!!! (HA! You thought I was going to say Debbie Bliss or Rowan, but no...I'm a tightwad, remember? I can't spend that kind of money! :))
