so awhile ago i much wanted to knit this sweater:

it's the dollar and a half cardigan that was in the spring 2007 interweave knits.

so i ordered the yarn from knitpicks.  and it was ugly.  so i returned it and ordered different yarn. and then i knit it. and hooray for me and it's the first sweater i've EVER made... and low and behold... it was a little too small on me. 

SO... i gift it upon my younger much skinner than me sister.



and THEN i knitted it again for me.



and thus, there were then two sweaters, and it was good.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

It's like it was meant to be.  They're both gorgeous.  Any chance of you knitting one too big?  I know somebody who could use one.  Wink

Oh, I love them both! You have so much patience to knit it not once but TWICE!  I love the green yarn though.  Then again...the brown is pretty on your sister.  Hmm.  I guess I'm trying to tell you that you should make me a green one like yours  Wink

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I've never really been a fan of this sweater...until I saw both of yours!  They're beautiful.  And the two of you are beautiful.  I dunno, for some reason, this post just makes me insanely happy!

They are great for your first sweaters!  And even if they're not your first sweaters!
