I know we’re mostly supposed to just post about sewing here on We Sew Retro, but I have seen a few gorgeous knitting projects pop up from time to time and I’m so proud of the first knitted garment I’ve ever made, that I couldn’t help but post it here. While we’re only one month into 2014, I think it’s safe to say that my Navy Miette will probably be the garment I’ll be most proud of in 2014. It’s wearable, comfortable, warm, soft and, if you don’t mind me saying so, it’s DARN (yarn?) CUTE!
My Miette is in no way perfect. There are places where I lost count, couldn’t remember what row I got up to or dropped stitches. There was even that time I knit my first sleeve on the wrong sized needle and I didn’t have the heart to frog it so knit my second sleeve on the wrong size as well so that they would at least match…um, yeah. I also probably should have knit up a size larger in the bust – it’s not a major issue fit wise, but the shaping around the bust stretches a little too much for my liking. I guess figuring out negative-ease comes with time.
