For this Lockdown Flashback, let’s travel back to a post I wrote in April of 2013. This post shows a lovely pullover I knit for myself – the design is called Livvy and the yarn is Lush Worsted, thus the post was titled Lush Livvy. (I promise it’s not lascivious.) I particularly like this project because I made quite a few modifications to the pattern to make it a much more suitable sweater for me – both in terms of fit and style.
In the post, I talk about how I identified the features I liked about the pattern, and also those that wouldn’t work on me, and the mods I made to make just the perfect sweater for me. If you ever wish that you could modify a pattern and worry about whether you are up to the task, this is a good post for you.
It’s hard to believe that I wrote the post seven years ago this week. Things were different back then, but thankfully many things are still the same. For one thing, I am still knitting. And still writing this blog.
It looks as if our lockdown here in the UK will be extended for another three weeks. Doug and I started isolating on the 11th of March – we are both able to work remotely during this crisis – so its been more than 5 weeks now. We are still talking to each other, which I guess is a good sign.
Keep well, everyone!
