The facts: home-schooled, lived from March 14, 1879 - April 18, 1955, German, Jewish, had cool crazy hair, won many awards, etc.
Unfortunately, (although even more brilliant) I'm not talking about that Einstein. In fact, I'm talking about a great (see the similarities) knit sweater pattern. Perfect in that it's very neatly constructed, easy to follow instructions, totally do-able 1st sweater pattern for beginners & you will feel super smart once you've completed it.
It's from The Knitting Experience Book 1: The Knit Stitch by Sally Melville
- less than 5 x 150g balls (or 11 x 50g balls of Lopi or another bulky weight)
- hand-spun 100% wool dyed in a khaki green.
- took a reasonable amount of time
- was a nice relaxing knit (perfect for obligatory T.V. watching with hubby in evenings or at appts.)
- straight forward, no nonsense pattern in garter stitch with the only decreases being in the sleeves
- only 2 seams (one at the top of each arm) to sew up to finish. (You pick up stitches to knit the various parts throughout)
- 5 buttons (I was given some wood toggle ones from Faye's stash)
The total cost of this project was $15- including tax. I had gotten the yarn from a vendor at the last spin-in I attended in Port Hope at an incredible $15- for 5lbs of hand-spun (she was clearing out last years stock). The wooden toggles were a gift from my friend Faye's stash (yes, the same Faye who got me started with quails, lol.)
Anyway, got to go finish a flamingo, peace out, Boop
