When I knit sweaters for myself I typically have to lengthen the entire pattern by two inches (or more) but this time I knit the body of the sweater as written and just lengthened the sleeves and it turned out great! In my opinion, the ability to customize a pattern is one of the best things about knitting your own sweaters. I'm a little taller than the average woman and I often find that off-the-rack sweaters just aren't as long as I'd like (especially in the sleeve area). It's so nice to be able to have sleeves that fit! My wrists get cold this time of year.
What's your favorite go-to customization?
And of course, since it's the day after Valentine's Day, I have to share a picture of the beautiful tulips that surprised me at work yesterday. Aren't they beautiful?!
