I’m so close to finishing this sweater! This weekend I sat down with a glass of iced jasmine-green tea, put on Game of Thrones, and got to work on the button band. I was hoping to get all of the ends woven in and to block the sweater, but I didn’t get quite that far.  I’m also debating if I want to embroider on my initial. I’m not entirely sure if I had the skills to do it so I might end up using duplicate stitch, if I do it at all. I’m having a hard time making my mind up, but I feel like if I’m going to add anything, I should do it before I block my sweater. Sometimes I’m way too indecisive.


  • I love it, have been thinking and wanting to knit a sweater plain but with another color for outline detail – kinda of like a Chanel jacket – and think this one would be perfect.

    Love the whole initial thing like Laverne and Shirley.

    Can’t wait to see the finished sweater.

  • You should totally do your initials! It’ll look very cute. I’m working on my first agatha right now, and I can’t believe how much fun I’m having. Also watching GOT, for the record 🙂

  • What if you embroider your initial onto some felt, add a pin-back and make it a brooch. That way it isn’t a permanent feature and you have a little more flexibility?

    • I ended up using duplicate stitch, but I like your idea and might try it in the future. It’d be a good way to practice my embroidery skills without worrying about ruining a project.
