Wednesdays Are For Knitting: Miss BB

I started Miss BB back in November with hopes to finish it in plenty of time for SPA. Alas, that was not to be as the holidays derailed my plans and mindless sock knitting was the only thing I could handle for a while there. A few weeks ago, though, I renewed my determination to get ‘er done and, even though I missed my SPA deadline by a couple of weeks, I’m so glad it’s done now.

On Sunday, when Dale took me for that drive to cheer me up, we stopped at a cemetery for a few photos of me and my new sweater. You all know how hard it is for me to hand over my camera but I did and Dale did just fine.

While I was knitting this I worried that it was too long. I worried that it was too small. I worried that all of my efforts would result in a sweater that didn’t fit. I needn’t have worried because it fits perfectly. It’s roomy and jacket-like and I love it so much I have worn it for 3 days in a row now.

It was cold and windy and I was grateful for the warmth of this sweater made of my favorite wool – Peace Fleece. It wears like iron and it shows off cables beautifully.

I love this sweater – the fit, the matching of yarn and pattern, the texture – everything about it! Honestly, I love it so much I may have to just knit another one!

    Looks great! I made that sweater a couple years ago and loved the pattern … though I ended up giving the actual sweater to my sister. (Thank heaven she actually wears it from time to time.)

    Love the fit, the color and that you’re wearing a beautiful sweater you love! Knitting can be fickle, but at a certain point it’s nice to know we DO know what we’re doing and our efforts create something we can wear for years to come. Nicely done!! You look fabulous in Miss BB!!!

    Making & wearing a sweater that fits is one of life’s pleasures. Bravo to you — and the photographer!

    That is a beautiful sweater, Carole! Love the color; great job on the pattern and cables. I know how you feel….when I make a sweater or vest that I absolutely love, I have to make another. It looks great on you!

    Great sweater, but I couldn’t get over laughing at the part where Dale took you to a cemetery to cheer you up! ;^)

    It looks great Carole! If you love it, knit another one. I really have to try some Peace Fleece. I have heard such great things about it.

    Wow – that’s beautiful – you’re right the yarn and pattern are perfect together and I love your choice of buttons. It fits you wonderfully and is very flattering. Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner!

    We are in agreement; It looks great on you! Personally, knitting button bands is off-putting to me, but all power to you in the cardigan knitting department.

    Wow! It looks like a sweater that will be worn and worn and worn…and that’s a good thing!

    GORGEOUS! I love it! You look fabulous in it — and it is a wonderful match of yarn and pattern. (And, oh man. Now I’m having an even HARDER time choosing a sweater to knit next. . .)
