The Throwback Sweater

KnittingBetsy FarmerComment

The throwback sweater. What a fun knit. It was my first time using both the yarns, Spincyle’s Dreamstate and Magpie Fiber’s Domestic Worsted. Both are amazing!!


I feel like I still have so much to learn when knitting color work. My tension is not perfect, it’s either too loose or too tight and I know that practice will help. Any tips anyone wants to send my way, please do!


Now to block the front bands and give this to it’s owner…because guess what? I didn’t knit this for me! LOL! Natasha, from Woolvan Knits, won this giveaway kit and I offered to knit it for her. Purely selfish on my part because I so desperately wanted to knit it and when Andrea Mowry brought it to Knitcity to give to Natasha, I couldn’t help myself…out popped, “I’ll knit that for you if you want!’. So glad I did!! Hope Natasha loves it at much as I do! ;)
