  1. Yesssssss! I finally found some podcast time! I love this idea of remaking sweaters… What a great project. I’m hoping I might be able to squeeze in some more garment knitting this year, too, so this could be just the motivation I need!
    By the way, in that steeked colourwork sweater, did the manufacturer manage to match the pattern so it looks continuous across the sides and yoke, or is there a very noticeable “jump”?

    • Hey Helen! Oh yes, get into some garment knitting! But, then again, you already make tons of garments–they are just Beastie sized! As for that sweater–no dice on the continuous colorwork . . . it’s a totally noticeable jump!

  2. Oooh, you could definitely make an improvement there, then! I don’t know about you, but since I started knitting, I’ve become so much more picky about the materials and design of store-bought sweaters… It’s so rare that one even passes the touch test for me any more!
