Mini Cardi

Filed under: crafts, knitting, me — Jana @ 6:00 am

Here is sweater attempt number 3. Let’s be honest, I don’t love it. Maybe it’s one of those things where I am too close to the project to be subjective… But my honest opinion is just…eh. The pattern I used only had one size to go by, and so I tried to make it smaller to fit me, but it after blocking it, it’s still a little to big. One of these days I am going to find an amazing pattern, and I am going to buy some amazing yarn and it’s just going to turn out the way I envisioned. Until then I will just continue to learn. If any knitters out there have any advice for me, I’m all ears!

Oh, and p.s. the front is way cuter than the back,  it looks  baggy back there… so I didn’t take any pictures of that angle.



  1. I think the sweater is way cute, but you know how it looks and definitely are your own worst critic. Even your worst creations are better than some of my best, so with that said, be happy you are so talented. PS-I need to see some recent art projects. Please don’t give up drawing – you have a talent that most people dream of possesing – please use it! ;)

  3. Obviously I think it’s perfect. I guess I can’t see the back, but the front really is adorable.

    And you draw? What the crap, why’ve you been holding out on me?
