I just finished up the last project of the year- a sweater for Gus.
I didn’t work from a pattern, and so had to figure out the shaping by trial and error, but I’m really happy with how it turned out.
The recipient, however, is feeling grumpy and refusing to model his new sportswear, so that will have to wait.
Anyway, because he has really broad shoulders and a deep chest (for a little guy), I decided to use some modified raglan shaping to get the right fit.
and incorporated about 2 inches of extra length in the chest before rejoining the front and back behind the front leg holes.
Also got sheep hooves trimmed this morning, so the flock is starting the new year on the right foot 🙂
Wishing you all a Happy New Year- see you back here in 2018!
