The sweater I am working on currently is part of the SKC’s
latest Knit-Along. It’s a really beatiful sweater that is right in style for Fall. When I went to see The Devil Wears Prada with my friend Courtney, I was so amazed to see the lead character wearing an off-the-shoulder black sweater with a white, collared shirt underneath it. Apparently, layering is in this year. Great – because I was thinkin’ it was going to take some new undergarments to wear this sweater properly. Me and The Girls need a bit of support, ya know?? Hee hee. I plan to wear the sweater as a layered ensemble most of the time.
But the pattern on this sweater is an all-over rib, and it really killed my hands. This may be the sweater that took me over the edge and actually gave me carpal tunnel! I’ve been sleeping with my mother’s CT brace on my arm at night, and last weekend when I was cutting out nametags for my classroom – two of my fingers fell asleep and stayed that way all day. Uh oh. I can’t wait until this sweater is finished to let my wrists rest! Maybe I’m doing something wrong? Tons of other folks are finishing – just check them out!
