I knit this sweater top down raglan style for my boyfriend for christmas - the stripes in the middle are morse code - it says "my girlfriend knit this" (well, I messed up & didn't notice until way later - it *actually* says 'my girlfriennd knit this" ah well!)

Wheeee! I just need to wash it now! I used Knitpick's Swish superwash - so we'll see how it does in the dryer.

That is so clever! Well done!

I love it! I also like that it's a little imperfect. It feels more authentic, like someone who was typing out the morse code screwed up a bit. I can't imagine it always came out perfect  Wink.

My alarm clock still holds a grudge from the time I threw it at the wall

If we're all thinking outside the box, doesn't that just put us in a bigger box?

What a fantastic sweater! Clever idea. What colors of the superwash did you use?

that misspelling will probably save you from the sweater curse.  Smiley

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

Haha!  That is such a clever idea.  I can just see someone who knows morse code stopping him to figure out what it says.   Grin

Thanks everyone!

I think he'll like it - and yeah, it was important that it be superwash - I don't think he's ever hand washed a sweater.

I used "Truffle" & "Deep Ocean" the truffle (brown) is sort of a weird brown but this wool is *SO* soft - I'm definitely going to keep it in mind to use again since I know a bunch of people who don't like wool next to their skin.
