A couple weeks ago while I was thrifting I came across this ugly but amazing knitted sweater. At first I thought about making something for Henry with it, but that quickly changed because I wanted to keep it all to myself. I just love the scene on the front. It makes me think of my German heritage. And it's 100% wool!
I thought it was ugly, but I couldn't stop looking at it. Into the cart it went. It was too big, so I measured and took it in.
I was nervous about sewing on such a big yarn, so I did two zigzags right next to each other and then serged it. I hope this will keep it from unraveling at all.
The hemline isn't straight, it's longer in the front than it is in the back, so I was going to turn it into a hi-lo hem. Then I realized that the longer hem is perfect for maternity, so for now I'm going to keep it how it is. I think eventually, maybe next winter, I'll straighten out the hem.
