  1. My three-hour sweater

    Wednesday, June 13, 2012

    If there is one thing that seems to be the vintage girl's right-of-passage, it's the Three-Hour Sweater. It's quick (but a little more than three hours), it's cute and it's really simple.

    I finally finished mine tonight (until I noticed some bits of yarn inside that I forgot to weave, but that's neither here nor there).

    Can you tell I bought a Sears version of the bullet bra?
    I'm really pleased with it! I went down a needle size because many other knitters said it came out a little bit too large and slightly shapeless.

    It's knit in a cotton/beechwood blend (Dandelion Shine Worsted Yarn by KnitPicks, if you're interested), which makes it really soft and light, but a little bit holy. Thusly, I'm wearing a camisole underneath. My only complaint is that I bound the sleeves off a little bit too tightly, which makes it difficult to get past my big 'ole elbows.

    Now I am off to embark on my next project. I think I'm going to do some birthday socks for all the summer babies in my life.

      Absolutely beautiful, and a gorgeous colour on you! So envious of anyone who can wear yellow...

      Good try with that bullet bra, but still not quite pointy enough!

      The sweater is adorable.
      And no I didn't notice it was a Sears bullet bra. I does not have that spear tip sharpness which is a bit too much for me. Just nice shapely lady bits. I'm betting it is a nice sensible bra with the three section cups. Or at least the one where the cup is cut across at about 45 degrees.
      I really do not like so many of the modern bras, they distort the breasts so they look like melons.
