I hand knit at night when my mind won't make decisions. This sweater started from a commercial pattern and was to be a vest. I didn't like how they did the armhole area, so I started directly with the body of the sweater. Then when I was working, I remembered that I had a machine knit vest that was similiar in color, so since there was plenty of yarn, I decided to add sleeves. They continued the pattern and end in ribbing. Next challenge-the neckline-it was way too big for me, so I picked up stitches and did the ribbing. I decided not to do any on the bottom, because I like the way it looks and fits without it. Short garments look better on me.
