Yes, but those sweaters don't look quite as nice as the one you recently modelled for us. ;-) -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Is there a pattern or did you modify a regular sweater pattern? Brilliant! Knocked my socks off and my hat's off to you!.

I am a conservationist at heart and love textiles...I would save the life of an abandoned or ignored sweater before you bust the stash. But if you must, just measure around the laptop, use a gauge per inch that works, and go for it. Double knitting ( a tube on single needles) or a tube on circs goes quite fast. I could see swatches being made and put to good use.

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

Great idea for reusing old sweaters...or swatches. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
