I try to learn something new with each project. This time I’m knitting the sleeves simultaneously… Not sure if I like this method, but it was worth a try.

Reluctantly agreed to take apart these beautiful wool babies to make a custom Star Wars Sweater for a Customer… It is so much more work than I had expected.  Some pieces are 2″ long and I have no idea what was going though her head when she attached the sleeves.  The collar is in two pieces, which is completely unnecessary for a crew neck and there is a hole that was patched with embroidery thread!

I can’t help but be sad while taking them apart.  Although I’m excited to knit something I can’t help but think, “is this going to be the fate of my sweaters?  All my hard work and creativity just given to someone to take apart and make new?

Needless to say I will never be doing this again.

Not the best pictures, but my model is out of town :P
