I'm making great progress on the custom order basket weave sweater. Yesterday I finished matching each row and crocheting seams together. After that I still had to do all finishing of weaving in ends, sewing in my label, and adding a "hand made" charm.
It's a long process to design and hand knit a sweater, but the rewards are great! I made a similar one for myself in navy blue more than 15 years ago and I'm still wearing it. Perhaps it's time to make another for myself, too.
As soon as I finish this sweater, I'll be back to work on the custom order afghan blanket I started recently. I move back and forth between knit and crochet projects to give my hands and fingers a rest from the same repetitive movements. It works!
