My Lucinda Sweater is done! And I am so happy about how it turned out. This is not my first sweater I knitted but it's the first one I did on my own just with a pattern and without any additional help. There were a few challenges and lots of youtube videos to get everything right, but now I can say, that I made it through. With a more advanced pattern (more advanced in terms of not making just a scarf) it is so important to just read it in parts. Just knit one part after another and deal with anything you don't know how to make at the beginning later on. To think in parts is way easier and less overwhelming.
I started this sweater for the first time back in February. When it was time to switch from knitting in the round to knitting in rows it was clearly visible (see photo above). Because of that I started the sweater for the second time in September but this time I knitted it flat. In the last two months I sat down and knitted on it every week. I love to knit in the evenings when it's getting dark (and cold) outside. It's such a relaxing time. I shared some progress photos along the way on Instagram. You can find them under the hashtag #whatandreaknits or see them all in a row on ravelry on my project page.
The only changes I made was to lengthen the sweater around 1" and to knit the whole piece flat.
This is the only sweater I own with a v-neck on the back and I still have to get used to wearing it. But I really like the look of it.
I made this sweater as part of my stash less project. It was my goal to knit something with this gray yarn I had in my stash since forever.
