You’ve heard of Lauren and Andi’s Outfit Along, right? Of course you have!
I’ve wanted to join in ever since they made the announcement, but I wasn’t sure how to do so without buying bunch of new materials since I’m trying to use up as much of what I have as I can before we move. I dug through my summer UFO list and came up with Goodale.
That’s right, this sweater was essentially finished when I realized it was waaay too big–what was I thinking?! I ripped out the whole thing, did some new gauge swatches on smaller needles, and was sure to wash them this time, a step I may have skipped last time. It’s back on a much smaller set of needles and looking much better this time.
After picking out this UFO for the sweater, I realized that I actually had some fabric tucked away for a dress that would like nice with the yarn. I pondered a few different dress patterns before deciding to go with Simplicity 1803, the “official” Outfit Along pattern.
I’m so excited to put together this outfit, and I love the concept of an Outfit Along. It seems like more and more bloggers are both knitting and sewing, so a project like this just makes sense!
