I've been done with the Funky Grandpa Sweater Pattern for about a month BUT I was afraid of the afterthought buttonholes. More on that (a bit later on my project review on My Ravelry Project Page ). Let me just say cutting your knitting is scary. Now, shiny things:
Anacapa Fine Yarns-- her blog is Moonlight Stitches and her revelry page is Moonlight Stitches on Ravelry. I will post a pattern review on Ravelry with some suggested changes I made.
I learned a ton of new techniques but my favorite was German Short Rows. I may do a tutorial for for the afterthought buttonholes since I couldn't find any video tutorials on the web. This technique was difficult to understand spatially. . . . really hard to figure out -- luckily I had knitting expert Anne to thank to walk me through them after the class ended.
Since I got my knit-jo on -- my sew-jo was on hold. Now, I'm trying to bring it back.
