Do you have ‘the’ favorite piece that you've worn over and over again yet, still you never get sick of? I 'had' one pullover! It was easy and simple to knit and beautifully fit in every way so I used it up about 9 years. After giving so much love it has been slowly old and saggy. The time has upon. I had to make a pullover number 2 that possibly could substitute the number 1.

After many days of revisiting those free and not free, simple and not-so-simple, easy and not-so-easy knitting patterns that I had saved for inspiration I got a good feeling with this pretty feminine pullover from DropsDesign. It is a simple design but the laced sleeves are good enough to give the plain look little sparkle. At those days I was totally in love with fair isle technique that I had just started learning. (By the way, if any of you get intimidated yet didn’t attempt to try you better! It is the most fun knitting I’ve ever learned!) After making two beautiful fair isle hats  I couldn’t stop doing it. So I went further. I got extra adventurous! I decided to spontaneously jazz up the edges of the sleeves last minute with some awkward self-designed fair isle. It worked out surprisingly well. I tell you. When the inspiration visits you just embrace it and go with it. You never know where it would take you.

Voila! This charming, beautiful boat neck pullover came out just like that! Oh, how much I got excited! Since I barely knit big items (successfully) this was a biggie! This gorgeous piece got loved, adored and complimented. And I’ve been happy!

But! (I know, this is going somewhere we all know...) I might outgrown, or the pullover got ingrown. I do not fit in it any more. I remember it was a tiny bit tight (but, not really tight!) yet pretty nicely fit. Now, I don’t look good and sadly don’t feel good in it. It has been a good run. Barely 2 years! With heartbroken, sitting in front of this beauty I had to be strong and let this go. I might lose some weight but I doubt it. Yes, let's face it. Well, it is time to start over. I am gonna have to find a new pattern, hoping I could settle down with it at least 3 years or more. Am I too greedy? I hope not.

What is your most heartbroken moment with your stitching? Did you ever get over it? Isn’t knitting giving you tears and laughs from time to time? I guess that’s one of the reasons I love knitting. How ironic!

Happy Stitching~
