I used to be a knitter... then discovered crochet and haven't touched the needles much in the last years... but when a friend posted about Stephen West's amazing design, I knew I had to make it.. like NOW ! I went straight to my huge stash and dug all sorts of yarns in tones of plum and orange. Some super old vintage french yarns, some handspun and hainpainted that I had been saving for a special project... and i'm so thrilled I got to mix and use all together !!
That pattern was so clever and well thought, I loved every minute of the process. Although I have to say that using so many completely different yarns led to having to frog and reknit several sections... (not enough yarn to finish, or sometimes yarn proved to be too thin compared to others, or just didn't blend in fine..
As for the odd shape... it's not very practical when you lift your arms (everyone sees my tummy!) or to fit in a winter coat...
Yet I'm totally in LOVE with this sweater.
What do you think: Crazy or awesome..? ;-)
