After my last blog post about how the finishing of a client's sweater on 15mm (US 19!!!!) needles made me feel like I was knitting with, forgive me, dildos, I had mused about the challenge of designing a sweater of superbulky yarn that I would actually WANT to wear. MatthewGnagy, bless his handsome heart, challenged me to a "DESIGN OFF" of said sweater, and after shaking with trepidation and fear in my Danner boots for a minute, I thought, "Why the HELL not?"
But why limit it to just us two?
So, here's the proposal:
Project "Men Who Knit" challenge:
Create a wearable, original MENS sweater knit of superbulky yarn. I'm thinking size US13 needles or larger. No finer than 3st/in gauge. Maybe a March 15th deadline? Photo submissions due then: one in the flat (laid on the table, etc) and one being worn by a model.
Anyone else interested?
