    What a sweet little piece! Love it. Also well done on knitting it so quickly with other stuff like Christmas going on. Thank you for sharing how you modify patterns, I think sometimes people are apprehensive about adding their own spin on a pattern. I wrote a post way back about modifying patterns that might interest some:

    Also can I ask: when you design pieces do you ever do test runs on a knitting machine to make them more quickly? I’ve never used or even seen a knitting machine but my engineering husband has thought it would be cool because they are quick and efficient and I could make a heap of garments in less time than it takes to hand knit. I’ve wondered if they’re used by people who design lots of things in different sizes just to test how they look. I only design little hats and things for now but would love to do bigger stuff.

      Hi Kat – We usually knit our prototypes etc. by hand, but Emily just got a knitting machine a couple of months ago so she has been working a few sweater bodies on it!

    I love the sweater. Think I need to make one. Got the Strange Brew pattern so all I need is yarn. maybe red with green, since green is not my favorite color to wear.
