Stitch Mountain: 30 Warm Knits for Conquering the Cold by by Laura Zander is a cool book. I got it in one of the fun bookstores in the Outer Banks, NC, USA a few years ago. I saw the Snowflake Turtleneck pattern in there and knit it, and TOTALLY messed it up. I think I botched the shoulder shaping. I dissected the completed faulty sweater the other day, and that’s what I think. I never did write a post about its completion because I was too ashamed and frustrated from having a messed up sweater.
After analyzing that sweater, I decided to give it another go. I cast on with a creamy white worsted yarn that I had left over from another project, and there’s plenty of it for a nice sweater. It took three tries to get there right gauge, but I did, so I know at least that correct!
So, here’s to giving it another go, and hopefully I can show off a completed sweater before the weather gets warm again. I’m being cautiously optimistic that I will have a correct fitting sweater this time, too!
