Fringed Peephole Sweater

HELLO, I’M KIND OF SAD TODAY, BUT I REALLY LIKE THIS SWEATER. I can’t believe this year is almost over. I can’t believe I still feel so aimless. I can’t believe we have three more years, and the first third also includes another insufferable royal wedding. I can’t believe this sweater is already my most treasured thing, and that I made it in a day. I can’t believe I made it at all, to be honest.

Can’t believe I couldn’t do better with the pictures, but I threw out my neck just from going to the hair salon, and I can barely move.

I took these photos before I went to the salon.

Can’t believe I have literally four other projects going right now, and I need to finish at least one of them by Saturday, but can’t decide which, so I’m finishing all four and then likely wearing something I already have in my closet. This sweater would look great over an evening gown, I think.

I LOVE IT. It’s made from ivory wool, which I grabbed for $5/yard at the textile outlet. I think I only used a yard, so this is a FIVE DOLLAR SWEATER. The fabric is felted on the reverse side, and is just the most insanely comfortable thing ever.

I’m terrified of ruining it.

The design is not my own – I straight lifted it from this Antonio Berardi heartbreaker, fringing the extra wide piping for a slight change. I don’t usually make literal copies.

But I don’t feel sad about it.
