i think that i have decided that i will only knit top-down sweaters - i love that they are seamless and take shape right as you work on them. i still have the pieces of a cowl neck sweater that i finished two years ago and have not seamed. (i know - really lame, but i also need to pick up and knit a cowl neck).
ellie's tea leaves was top down as was this great little knit shirt that i made her. and, also a swingy little jacket. come to think of it - pretty much everything i finished in the past year was top down.
i am almost finished with a top down project for myself. and, i just bought this new book, that i am very excited about.
the patterns look so great - i am very excited to dig in!
