Now how's that for a blog post title? The right and left jabs, as you may have guessed, refer to the fact that Resident Chef and I got both our flu shot and our bivalent Covid booster shots yesterday....one in each arm.
And, the almost a finish refers to the latest sweater to come off my knitting needles. After much procrastination I finally got the seams done although I still have to muster my courage to sew in a zipper. I've sewn zippers before but never into a knitted sweater.
The pattern I used, sort of, is THIS one.....BUT.....I changed it. I added a basketweave design pattern to the main body pieces but did the sleeves plain. Yarn was entirely leftovers of Lion Brand Jeans yarn that I used to make the sweaters for the grandies last Christmas. I played a game of yarn chicken and I won!
- THIS little fellow made me smile!
- THIS is another nice shawl design (scroll down for the pattern)
- There are tons of ideas HERE to use up fabric scraps.
- THESE are really pretty and don't look too difficult to make.
