Heavens imbrace the horizon.
No matter how jaggad the profile,
The sky faithfully conforms.
I mentioned a little while back that I attended Amy Herzog's retreat, "Wear.Make.Love" in which she taught how to make a sweater that really fits. At the end of the class, she made her new software, CustomFit, available to the class members to try. (It is now open to everyone...go take a look)
The software is still in it's early process and there have been some minor glitches, but the concept of being able to plug in your personal measurements, plug in your swatch size and have the program spit out a custom designed sweater exactly just for you is nothing short of amazing.
Amy created a sweater using my Frolic yarn, as I mention before and I decided that my first CustomFit sweater would be the same sweater, Birch Bark. So far it's been easy to follow the pattern and the part that I love the most is that in addition to giving measurements just for my size, is the continuous row counts throughout the entire pattern which has been a tremendous help to me.
Now to the title of my post. As you look at the picture of the lovely cable on the cuff of my bell shaped sleeve there is an imperfection. I am pretty good at reading charts, but for some reason I could not understand some portions of this particular chart and my cable is not exactly the way it should be. Instead of the cable being surrounded by a rectangle of garter stitch, that garter should have rounded around the cable, but at the end of the day, it will not bother me. I will just have to remember to make the exact same way so they will match.
I will be working on my sweater this weekend and enjoying the late fall weather. What will you be doing?
