Title: Piano Sweater - what do you think?
Post by: DancingBoots on November 06, 2006 01:30:02 PM


My first sweater in a few years, it's a pattern my mom picked out made with Sugar and Cream cotton. What do you think?

The pattern called for some crocheted music notes to be appliqued but I decided not to put them on.

I think it looks great! I think adding the notes would detract from the crispness of the sweater as it is now.

Slipped_Stitch --> Too funny! You are right on! Apparently my mom bought the kit in the 80's but never made it. She still wanted me to knit it, so I did! I can't slip nothing past you!

Thanks for the laugh. That's priceless!

Am I the only one who thought this was going to be a cozie for a piano?  :D

You did a great job on it!  It looks really well done.  I'm sure your mom will love it :)

That is some gorgeous work! It's so retro and 80's, I dig it. :-)

That's a totally awesome sweater--but if I were you I'd be prepared for jokers reaching out and pretending to "play" the keys!

totally 80's... i'd expect lionell ritche to wear this, hardcore... he should have worn this in that video with the blind chick sculpting his face (and that is the extent of my lionell ritche knowledge...)

Oh man how tacky *good thing*. I think some little musical notes would look good if they were embroidered.

Ha! Awesome. I actually did have a sweater like this when I was a kid... except the black part (except the keys) was hot pink!
