Hello Internet friends!
Today I wanted to share my flecked(?), cropped geodesic sweater! (I don't know if flecked is the right word but to me it's flecked) This is my second geodesic, the first I made up last spring in a lovely rayon ponte in an eggplant purple. I've gotten so many complements on it, and it's so comfy to wear, that I knew I needed to make up a second. I made this version in an all cotton sweater knit that I picked up at the spool of thread sale last spring.
This project has been a while in the making, I cut the fabric out wayyyy back in September durring one of my 'weekends are for cutting fabric' mass project cutting frenzies! I didn't get around to sewing it though until early Feb of this year. I don't know why this took me so long to sew considering I wear the other one to death....but once I got started I got well suck in and it came together over two sewing sessions. It would have been one if not for some of the issues I had with serging the tiny 1/4" seam allowance. Read More
