I Found the Tape Measure!

Not that it was that difficult, seeing as I have a tape measure collection, but I found one and decided to make it a sweater, not a dress.  I also tried it on and it fits just like I wanted it to - not too tight, not too loose, just right.  In addition to binding off the body, I also got all the ends woven in before I started my first sleeve.  See?  It was a productive weekend.  The sleeves will have more stripes than the body and they’ll only be the darker color and ivory - none of the pale blue green will be on the sleeves.

I think this pattern could be one I knit a lot of - it’s a classic shape, and did you notice the stripes?  I could do all kinds of things with the stripes!  I also tend to live in sweaters like this when it gets cold - I wear them like long sleeved t-shirts.  Of course I could also knit this shape without the stripes, but where would the fun be in that?

You've enabled me! I have a sufficient stash of Knit Picks Palette to knit my size. Best of all, it comes from an UFO that dated back to my smallest size. I'm so excited about being able to use that yarn, and get it out of my "drawer of shame"!
