The Sweater

Can you still call it a sweater if you make it to curl up in it like a blanket with a good book on a chilly evening?  Because that is why I made this particular sweater.  It's big, bulky, slouchy, a hoodie, and down right comfy.


  1. Very, very nice! You are talented missy! What are you knitting next?

  2. Sweet! So sweet!

    been talking wedding all morning - finally!

  3. Looks like the perfect one to me! You KNOW you will USE it, rather than it sitting in the closet waiting for that special time you would wear one not so functional. Good for you! It is just beautiful. I love the blue!

  4. That looks super-comfy! Kudos to you for being able to think ahead to needs for cooler weather!

  5. that is hand made?!?! amazing! good job rachel!

  6. Big, bulky, slouchy & comfy = AWESOME! Really, it's always my slouchy sweaters (none of which are handmade and beautiful)that are worn the most. With pyjama pants. The perfect outfit.

  7. I love it. What would I have to do to get one of THOSE?

  8. You are incredible! It looks like a "camping" sweater to me. ;)

  9. Rachel--really, really great!! Might need to borrow that pattern.

  10. Tami, Thank you! Wait till you see what I am knitting next!!! I just finished it. :D A chicken! What else......

    Hanna, I do too! In the evenings when I get cold I snuggle up in it. I love slouchy yummy things.

    Kristen, You're going to need one of these for after the wedding!!!

    Korrie, It isn't pretty but it is comfy!

    Jody, Very true. I have some nice sweaters but as you say, they aren't worn that often. This one I'm already using even though it is summer.

    Anaise, I'm already using it! By the end of the day, the AC in the house is so cold. Which I like!!! But just cold enough for a snuggly sweater.

    Marseille, I did! I made something that actually works! Shocking I know. I'm totally shocked!

    Wabi, You said it. The pajama pants especially. ;)

    Kathy, LOL! Let me think on it and get back to you.

    Nat, Dang it! I didn't bring it to camp. I should have. I froze often enough.

    Leanna, Let's find you another pattern. Truthfully, I hated this pattern. It could have been put together so much easier. The way it is written frustrated me many a time. Not well done. We can find the same sweater but written up and put together better.


Go know ya wanna comment!
