Remember this sweater frenzy sparked from Rodarte’s Fall / Winter Colleciton, 2008 – 2009? It actually stuck around for a while, with many high street retailers making their own versions.
I – along with a lot of other knitters – looked at that dress and said “Pffft… I can do that!” (with a bunch of odd balls and scraps for no $$$, too!) I’m not even sure when I started this sweater, but I found it in a bin 97% finished. The back and sleeves were 100% finished, only the right side of the neck was left to be knit, seams to join and finish the ribbing at the neck. I have no idea why I lost the motivation to complete it. Anywho…. ta dah!
Don’t even ask me what yarn I used or needles – they are all odd balls and scraps from other projects. I just gathered everything fuzzy I could find – pulled out colours I liked and knit. Trend or no trend, I’m glad I finished it and will definitely wear it. Styled with a vintage Ports International silk shirt. I also recently found a rust coloured suede skirt at a thrift store, (brand new with the tags – $ 5.00), that might help to make me look like I know what I’m doing!
