UFO sighting!!!

I was going through my closet, and I found this Unfinished Object. It is the Cropped Pullover #2 from Vogue Knitting Winter 2005/2006. I decided to make it using Manos del Uruguay in Rust (#28)


I was very ambitious to want to do this as my first sweater, considering it did not have the traditional sweater shape. There is nothing like it. I mean, it is both a V-Neck and a turtleneck (when flipped upside down).
After completing the body piece, I was supposed to somehow join it, and then add on the sleeves and collar. The VK instructions were a little bit difficult to understand at the time that I was trying to construct it. However, it has since been updated, and I can continue on without a problem.
Just a side note. I was able to get the stitch gauge, but the row gauge was a little off, so I compensated for this by adding more rows to the length of the sweater so that it can meet the required measurements. It is done in a K1P1 rib, so stretching should not be a problem. More updates later. Happy knitting everyone!!!

This is a very cute sweater and I can definitely see you wearing it. I had no idea that you had this project stashed in your closet as what was suppose to be your first sweater. I definitely think now that you have more knitting under your belt this one will go smoother for you. So let me see, as of right now you have 3 UFO sweater's? :-)

Whew! I'm glad it came out okay, as you said nothing about swatching. Generally, most row gauges don't match up, which is why it's just easier to knit to measurements and block. BTW, do you still need me to help you with blocking? Call me.

That wrap sweater's gonna look fabulous in orange; just in time for fall.

Oh, Deb Deb Deb. I have just realized I now have 3 UFO sweaters in the works. What's the prob??? Giggle, giggle! I need to seam, seam, seam.

Hey!! The next sweater I make will be all in one piece, no seaming, Mary Beth. Hehe!! That will be my second Central Park Hoodie... It will be variegated, of course.

Hmmm....I think we need to finish the first hoodie before we even think to start the second. LOL I know. I know. You are blocking it this week. Yay!
