I've finally completed my Sunrise Circle jacket, and I couldn't be happier with the end result. Well I'm no model but here I am. I began knitting this back in April - 2009! It's my first 'big girl" sweater, and over one hundred dollars worth of yarn and a year and a half later you can only imagine how ecstatic I am that the whole thing not only seamed up correctly but actually fits! And I know I'll wear it all the time. It's so cozy!
This was a real confidence builder for me as a knitter and I hope in the future to have a closet full of hand-knit sweaters.
I know most of you don't read this blog to find out any sort of knitting info, but the pattern is the Sunrise Circle Jacket by Kate Gilbert and can be downloaded on Ravelry. My version is knit using Jo Sharp's Cashmere Aran Tweed in Ivy and the yarn is a dream to work with. This pattern looks complicated but I only consider myself to be an advanced beginner, so if you want to try it out, go for it!
I'll be back soon with more quilty fabric love:)
