A new knitting project

I have started a new knitting project today. Well, I should say that I am still making the gauge swatch. I hate this part but it is just like quilting without finding an accurate quarter inch seam allowance before you sew. Speaking of that, do you know how to find an accurate seam allowance? The easiest way is to place the first line on a ruled index card under the needle and slowly lower the needle till it just touches the right hand side of the ruled line. Mark this spot on your machine with seam guide or whatever else you want and that is where the fabric runs as you sew.

Here is my bee-u-tee-ful new sweater pattern. You can wear it two ways. One is short and one is long.




That is for those days when you don't know up from down. You will still look smashing either way! Hope it gets made!
