On the Needles Friday Oct 25th 2013

Ta-da!   I finished my test knit for Amy Herzog's CustomFit.


I am super thrilled with my sweater.  Customfit is an awesome system.   You enter your measurements and the measurements from your swatches along with your style choices, and CustomFit gives you a pattern just for you.  With no math! Since I am a very tall plus sized person who never gets row gauge, this never happens to me- I always have to do a bunch of math.  Not this time!

Since the sweater was completed, I have been working on these socks for a trade:


The pattern is Sake by Cookie A from the book knit.sock.love.  This is the 2nd sock of the pair, so there is some hope they might be finished soon.

Linking up to Patchwork Times for On the Needles.

Maggie - you SHOULD be thrilled with your sweater - it is amazing!!! It looks like it fits you to a "T" and really looks nice on you :*) I love your socks too - very challenging.

Congratulations on the great finish!!!

WOW!
The sweater fits perfectly!!!
I will have to try the Customfit website. I hate that fooling around with the paper and pencil and calculator.
I am so impressed!

Your cardigan looks great. I'm waiting for the "recipes" of some of Amy's older patterns to become available to try out CustomFit.
