I Love Lizzy!


Lizzy is finally finished! Yay!

This project was a real test of my knitting skills, and I loved every minute of the challenge.

With the help of some fellow Ravelry friends, I learned how to:

– add a hem to this garment to keep it from raveling at the bottom – add waist shaping and alter the sleeve width for a more customized fit
– I also sewed this sweater together myself–one of the only times I’ve done this with a sweater, and it came out pretty well!
– The one thing I would do differently is this: I picked up stitches and did a 3-needle bind-off for the side seams, as I’d read that this was an option rather than sewing. It came out fine, but the seams (such as the sleeves) that I sewed look smoother. I guess I CAN sew!

All in all, a wonderful learning experience, and I adored working with Noro. I may order some more of this color (I have 3 skeins left) to make a Clapotis.
