I've really been knitting some beautiful sweaters for people in the US and Canada. It is exciting to see the soft, warm yarn unfold from a ball into beauty. Just to know that one day someone will wear it and receive many compliments.
The lady from Portland, Oregon wore hers to a seminar a few weeks ago. She reported that she got a lot of compliments. She must have been a real eye catcher in her warm pink alpaca with mohair pink trim. It was stunning!
Hand knitting isn't hard but time consuming. I am sure that many of the sweaters now days are machine knit. I read somewhere that they hand knit the seams so that it passes for "hand knit". Now isn't that something. Machine knit with hand knit seams. That just doesn't seem right, does it?
Well back to my knitting. Love to make people happy because Not All People Are Created Equal. Takes the full measurements of a person to make the sweater!
