Sweater progress



I've been knitting a lot in the past few days. And watching youtube videos... Ahem. I don't think that's really the best thing to do, the perfection of those girls I'm watching starts out inspiring, but is always getting me down in the end. It's great for knitting endless stockinette though. (I know... audiobooks. I really need to look into that)
I tried on my sweater on Sunday morning, but I added quite a bit of length after that. I love that it fits perfectly, while I just winged the measurements.
It's long enough to be a sweater now, but I still have enough yarn to make a tunic. I'm not sure though. I do like it as a sweater, but I think I will wear it more often when it's longer (covering my hips and my butt). Since this is real wool, I'll only wear it when we visit the Netherlands anyway. But I'm going to use the basics of this pattern and cotton yarn to make tops and maybe even dresses that I can wear here.
Anyway, I'm enjoying the simple mindless knitting, so I don't mind making it longer.

    1. It is. And I will. So I'm making it longer. I figure I can always rip back.

  2. It looks so cozy. Good for you for getting your measurements right! I could never wing it like that. Nice work. :)

    1. Sometimes I luck out. But I also have times where things don't work out at all. I do like winging stuff though.
