Finished Object Friday - Second Custom Fit Sweater

Happy Friday!  Here is my second finished CustomFit sweater.    I am really happy with it.  It is a modification of Dansez by Amy Herzog.  Much thinner yarn and using the CustomFit software to customize to my measurements.  It fits very well, especially under the arms which is always a tricky part for me.  It does have more fitted sleeves than I would normally do - I have pretty thin arms so no commercial pattern would be as close fitting as these or even the right amount of ease that I would like. I could have modified that in the software but didn't catch it in time.  The yarn is soft so it is fine.  

CustomFit software is getting closer to being ready for release.  Amy and team have been working like banshees on it.  I want to do a cardigan but haven't started swatting or thinking about it yet.  I have three very boring projects going on and I'm trying to stay focused to finish one of them.  At least one.  Actually I have more than three projects on the needles because I have a pair of socks that I always forget about and I have the Bee Keeper's Quilt that I go in stops and starts on.  I really do need to finish one thing, don't I?

Head over to Tami's and Wisdom Begins in Wonder to see all the great projects.


  1. The Custom Fit software is really exciting. I always need to alter patterns, even if I don't actually do it! Having someone else do the maths is very appealing!

  2. Just lovely. Great job on the recent FOs, can't wait to see what's next.

  3. That sweater looks fabulous. I love how all of your projects lately have been so perfect. They look fabulous on you. The sleeve length is really nice too. I love having the details at the elbow instead of the wrist.
