Finished Knit: Gale
I recently finished knitting Gale - kind of a cross between a poncho, tunic and sweater - and I love it! I had serious doubts it was going to fit well before I stitched the various pieces together. The back and front pieces seemed way too big. Then the neck opening looked enormous. But, I trusted the pattern and everything came together quite nicely, if I do say so myself! Even my husband said, "That's pretty awesome that you knit all of that." Agreed. This is only my second knit garment but it's my knitting goal for 2017 to knit more. They kind of freak me out a bit because you spend so much time working on them and what if they don't fit in the end? Right now I'm working on a vest that I'm knitting with my own handspun yarn. Now that's a double whammy on the time commitment!
