simple stripes sweater

Tuesday, May 25, 2021

I know some people that don't like stripes. However, I am in the other camp and I LOVE stripes!  And knitting stripes couldn't be more fun because you never get bored.  The next stripe is right around the corner!   

I originally fell in love with Andrea Mowrey's sweater called STRIPES! I bought the pattern and knew at some point I would make that sweater.  It was in my queue and on my mind.  Then, Gina (from SkeinCocaine) posted her striped sweater and I instantly knew I loved her color choice.  I headed to her site to purchase the mini's that she perfectly named the Perfect Pallet.  Thank goodness I talked about making a striped sweater on my Podcast, and thank goodness Gina was watching and left me a message explaining that I should make the Simple Stripes Sweater by Suviknits not the STRIPES! sweater.  The Simple Stripes sweater calls for fingering weight yarn which is the weight of the Perfect Pallet minis.  The Stripes sweater calls for a sport weight yarn.   She sure saved me a lot of time and headaches not having to adjust the gauge.   

After seeing the Simple Stripes pattern, I realized this style is a little better for my body.  It's a little less boxy and a little longer.  I also love this neckline.  
I knit 13 rounds in each color for the body, but didn't have enough yarn to knit 13 rounds per sleeve, so I knit 10 rounds instead.  I'm not that fussy so that is not a bother for me, but I do know that may really bother someone else!   It also made my sleeves shorter.  I adore 3/4 sleeves so this was perfect.  

 Pattern:  Simple Stripes by SuviKnits
Yarn:  Perfect Pallet Minis by SkeinCocaine
Needles:  US 4

    I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster dr unity. My name is Emily Sarah am from Tx,USA. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me.
