Finished Friday: September 9th-15th

I feel like it’s been a really long time since I finished something and was able to post a Finished Friday! It’s been about 2.5 months to be exact! Anyway, I only have one finished project to post today and it took me 5 months to finish when it probably should have only taken me 3-4 days! 😂 My one and only finished project this week is called Courie In.

It’s a paid knitting pattern on Ravelry. It costs $7 as of this post and is well worth the money! It uses super bulky weight yarn and size US11 needles. I used Lion Brand Hometown USA in Fort Worth Blue and it took me about 8 full skeins! The sleeves and the upper back portion are knit first and then seamed together, the you pick up stitches along the bottom to complete the lower back portion. After that, you pick up stitches to create the fabulous shawl collar! It’s fantastic! The next time I make this, and there will be a next time, hopefully soon, I will increase the size (because I’m a tight knitter) and use a teal or a burgundy! This sweater here is going to find a lovely home with my Mom this weekend! I hope she likes it as much as I do! It’s so warm and cozy!

Until later, stay inspired!
