Hi everyone! I think it's honestly been about a year or so since I posted here, but I've been slowly making my way back into the knitting world since I graduated college and have been pursuing a lot of different jobs and ventures.
The big question I have is this- I have done so much hat work, scarf work, gloves and mittens, and I am currently working on my first blanket (Ravelry's Cerys Baby Blanket by Leah J. Williams- I am expanding it to 6ft. x 6ft. to make an adult-sized throw... pictures to come). But the one thing I have just never had the courage to finish was a sweater.
About 2 years ago I started the DROPS Pullover in Eskimo, and had finished both the front and back, and most of one sleeve. However I was about $70.00US in, and didn't have the time, energy, or money to finish... so now that I've been knitting for almost three years, I have just never gotten up my gumption to do a sweater.
I find, often, that some of the men's patterns are nice, but not something I would wear- more fun to knit than functional. I was wondering if anyone knew a good pattern to start with that would not break the bank and that would be nice sweater to wear for a twenty-something guy... and that wouldn't make me want to tear my hair out in its construction!
PS- It's good to be back =) Hope everyone's doing well!
