When this year began (2016 I mean), I decided that this would be the year for something new. Something huge. Something that I haven’t done before.

First that came to mind was a sweater. I have knitted a sweater before but only according to the pattern. Knitting a sweater from point zero – that was something new, and huge, and something I haven’t done before.

Naturally my “go to” page for sweater courses was Craftsy. Did you know that they have 14 classes just for sweaters? I counted you know…

I had a hard time to choose from so many, but I narrowed my search. As you know I’m all about cables and lace, so it had to be this kind of class. Now I had 5 Β courses left.

Basically, I just chose the one that looked the best… this one:

Custom Cabled Pullovers

Now Mondays are my Vogue sweater challenge days.

Remember, last time I calculated all my stitches and pattern repeats? Well, I have finished my front…

If you want to check out the challenge from the beginning then look here:

If I had to sum it up into one sentence – I’m more or less satisfied, BUT…

  • I think I made mistakes when I calculated – I sorted it out as I knitted but still…
  • And my shoulder shaping is little off – it will fit, but I think that shoulders should be little bit longer. I think I’ll frog it and make it perfect, because…you know…it will haunt me ’til the end of time

I won’t stress over it too much though. I’m happy with it over all – just little tweaks here and there. No big deal.

And to finish my post on a positive side – here is a little behind the scene picture:

Sweater challenge behind the scenes

Usually, my bed is full of stuff – that way I have to put all of it back to their right places (I’m bad at it)

Now tell me – what is your knitting challenge this year?
