I started this sweater 4 years ago. The color is a dream to work with for me. I designed the fair isle pattern and painstakingly graphed it out on my computer then printed. I sketched an idea for the shape of the body, which is designed to be form fitting up to the bust and the upper arms, then balloon out a little bit. I stopped knitting after I finished the front and back and grafted the shoulder seams together. I let it sit in my closet this entire time. I've decided to pick it back up and finish the damn thing. I think I was just stumped as to what to do for the sleeves. I’m still not quite sure how to get a poof like I wanted, or if I really even want that shape anymore. I’ve never done short rows, and though I’m sure I could, I’m not sure my first time should be on my own design. Maybe. Here is my sketch of the body. This is why I didn't go to Parsons or FIDM. Now you know. Shhh.
