When Not to Knit a Sweater
If you read this blog at all, you know I love knitting sweaters as much as the next knitter. But sometimes you can find a fabulous sweater all pre-made and perfect just waiting for you at the store! This lightweight cardigan illustrates one of the points I made in my blog post about picking sweater patterns: If you can buy it in a store, and you love it, why bother knitting it yourself?
I found this beige cardigan at Ross last week for $17. It's a lightweight cotton that I find perfect for in between seasons. It has this beautiful lace back that is right on trend right now, and is a perfect fit for me (though I could take a better photo of the back). I love it!
So let's be honest: I probably couldn't buy the yarn to knit this sweater for $17. And it would certainly take more than $17 worth of my time to knit. So the purchase of this cute cardigan was a great buy for me. Check out more hints on choosing the perfect sweater pattern here.
