I’m just finishing up my first sweater pattern (for my 3 year old), and realized that before tackling a bigger sweater, I can kill two birds with one stone - ie. learn some new techniques and avoid freezing in my new office.
I’ve been looking around at patterns, but haven’t settled on one that works. The closest I’ve found is a Lily Chin reversible cabled shawl pattern, but I’m not going to spend money on a book of patterns until I’m a little more experienced. (Here’s a link to a picture - http://www.glittyknittykitty.co.uk/archive/2005/07/lily_chin_rever.html
I need something I can wear at work (ie that I can type in without it falling off, and that doesn’t look “granny-esque” or have tassels, or look like a lace tablecloth. I have nothing against these kinds of designs but they won’t do for work). I’d also like it to be interesting but not impossible to knit.
