A Finished Red Sweater


The red sweater is blocking. I haven’t picked out a button for it yet. I am thinking about a pearl button I have if it is big enough. Not a real pearl, the plastic sort you find on the button aisle of fabric stores. The pattern calls for a bead as well as beads on the tips of the points at the bottom of the sweater. I don’t think I am going to put beads on there, though. I think I will just weave the ends in when it is dry. I left them unwoven for blocking because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do yet.

Right now, I just have my sock project, but I am going to start the BSU sweater today. My husband is already asking about it. He loves when I make him things.

Several people have mentioned using their Red Cross Knit Kit to make socks for their fathers. I think I might use the pattern to make my Dad some socks for Christmas. Maybe with some Koigu.
