    I’d like to attempt a sweater using strange brew. My question is this a top down design sweater or bottom up? I’m pretty new to knitting and am working my first top down sweater and finding I much prefer this construction to be able to adjust fit as I go vs a bottom up construction. I love your site and find your resources extremely helpful. I missed your KAL.

    I am amazed and inspired by your creative ideas and methods. And with children at home! Your output is truly outstanding. Thanks for all you do for the knitting world and this plodding knitter (one sweater a year if I’m lucky) ..

    This has caught my eye because I just love the colours but also because it sits on your body crooked. Both sides of your body mimic what mine does. Things don,t sit straight.
    I would love to be able to have a fix for this. I hope you don,t take offence but I know we are not alone and you girls are so good at fixing! Hugs WAH.
