Our eight week knit along has drawn to a close. I had a blast hosting it and can’t wait to do it again.

But first, my Beatnik!

Look at Those Freaking Cables!

It’s cute as hell and fits like a dream. When I blocked it it got longer and isn’t cropped in the lease now. It is exactly the length I want everything I own to be.

Too Cute!

I don’t think I’ve ever knit something that fits me so well. With my DK weight yarn, the Knit Picks City Tweed DK, instead of knitting the 36″ size I went with the 44″ size, and it worked out so well.


What else is there to say? I’m in love. I’m so in love that I ended up taking 98 pictures of myself in this sweater for this shoot. 98. Granted, my camera auto shoots 7 shots at a time, but still.

HOTT From the Back, Too

I hardly made any modifications to this sweater. The only things I changed had to do with adjusting for my smaller gauge, like when I added rows to the cap sleeves, which you can read about here.

Love Love Love

I highly recommend this amazing pattern. I highly recommend this amazing yarn!

I'll Miss You, Beatnik

And I can’t wait to show you the other Knit Along participant sweaters, too.
