Not a me-made, but a gift from my sister!
Anne mentioned a few months back that she’s been eyeing a pattern thinking it would suit me: the Lady Bat. Isn’t that a great name? And so kind of her to knit it for me! You can read all her Ravelry notes here.
I don’t really know how to describe this shape – it’s a hexagon, I guess, but an irregular one. (Hello, I feel like I’m teaching geometry! Which is, actually, one of my favourite math units to teach…) Anne brought the neckline in higher/smaller than the pattern called for so that it would be more work-appropriate.
I can still wear it Footloose-style if I want – I’ve always liked off the shoulder tops but never felt comfortable in them! (How do you wear this style without always fussing at the neckline?) It’s shorter and boxier than what I usually wear, but it’s a beautiful colour and a fun shape!
Anne says it can go straight in the washer because it’s cotton – that seems a little scary to me though! How do you care for cotton sweater, O Crafty Ones?
p.s. Thanks Anne!
p.p.s. I’m writing this on my brand new MacBook Air! Cost a small fortune to get the specs I need (aka. larger enough to store all my photos on), but it’s so fast! It also doesn’t heat up hot enough to give me contact burns, so that’s a good thing, and a sign my old computer was really struggling! ❤
