Finished: Stripey

Hi friends! I finally got pictures of some of the FOs I've had lying around for a while, woo hoo! Up first is my Stripey, aka "The Bosom Friend Sweater." My friend Annika was looking to rehome this as a WIP a couple months back, and the colors were totally my jam, so I immediately scooped it up. It worked out perfectly, because I really do love the stripes and the colors, and we have a similar bust measurement (thus the "Bosom Friend").

This came to me as a front and a back attached at the shoulders and with a finished collar. First I wove in all the ends, and that took...a while. I think it probably took three hours, but then I was able to pick up and work the sleeves. Once that was done, I seamed from the bottom of the sides up and along the bottom of the sleeves, and presto! I had a finished sweater.

This thing is so cozy and squishy and I love it. I really can't wait for the weather to start cooling down so I can wear it. The astute of you may notice that I cut even more of my hair off! I loved the bob, but I really needed something more dramatic, so a month or so ago I did another big chop and I love it.

Pattern: Tweedy--Stripey by Leslie Weber
Yarn: Harrisville Designs Highland "Charcoal," "Camel," and "Aster"


  1. Oh wow, I love your Stripey! It looks fantastic, and the colourblocking worked out so well.

  2. I love your stripy sweater! I can't believe you got handed down a partially knit sweater. "Bosom Friend" HAHAHA If I were her, I'd be plotting to steal the thing back now!

    The haircut is cute, I like it on you!
