Lystra pullover progress
I'm knitting the Lystra Pullover from the book Knitting Plus. And Woo hoo, I just finished the back and have it blocking. I started on the body rather than the sleeves, because I’m going to need to make some sleeve modifications using the chart in the book. I modified the body by making it a-line. I wanted plenty of room around the hips. Of course, now I’m worried I made it too big at the bottom and too little at the top. LOL We’ll see. Since I’m a newbie, I’m using this as a learning project. I hope to have a nice basic sweater pattern adjusted to fit me when I’m done.
