Custom Fit Sweater - FInished Object Friday!
I'm feeling much better, not necessarily getting more sleep, just adjusting to it. My husband continues to improve but we have 4 - 6 months of recovery/physical therapy to go through. I promise to not complain for that long. I'm also very happy to have had so many finished objects in a row! Feeling very productive. But this will probably be the last for a week or two.
This is a sweater that came from Amy Herzog's Custom Fit software. I'm in the second group of beta testers. You input your swatch details - row and stitch gauges and your measurements. Then you choose what type of style and some other factors - this is a crew neck pullover with short sleeves and 0" of ease. You select the hem lengths and depth of the neck opening. You get a pattern for a bottoms up, set in sleeve that has the waist and bust shaping to fit you perfectly.
This picture helps you see the vertical darts that are used for the shaping. The patterns are very well written and give you detailed instructions for the shaping. There is also a guide for taking your measurements so that you know where and how to measure. I will keep you posted on how the software is coming and when it will be released.
Have a great weekend, make time for yarn and check out the other great projects at Tami's and Wisdom Begins in Wonder.
