New Domain Name + Knit Mint Aiken Sweater

So I finally bought myself a real domain name - no more of this blogspot.com nonsense. I think going to alisonweare.blogspot.com will still bring you to my blog, but if anyone wants to update their blog readers, my new domain name is www.alisonesther.com. Very exciting! (I contacted Bloglovin to move my followers for me, so if you use Bloglovin don't do anything.)

I plan to go through and re-take some of my older project photos; the MacBook Photobooth pictures  just don't cut it. I don't know why I used my laptop to take my blog photos for so long when my dad had a real camera in the house the whole time...Anyway, I plan to step it up a notch with the blogging, and getting a legit domain name seemed like the first step.

In other news, I have yet another knitted project to post. I am sorry to everyone who DGAFs about my knitted stuff, but I SWEAR my next two posts will be sewing projects. I was planning to post a sewing project before this sweater and I was going to take photos yesterday after I got home from work - I took a shower and everything - but then it kind of started raining and then I felt lazy and then it just didn't happen.




The pattern is Aiken by Andi Satterlund.












I used Knit Picks Brava worsted weight yarn in Mint.

Total Cost: $10.46


I was desperate for a warm wintertime sweater to go with my black and white skirts, and this sweater is exactly what I needed. It's cropped, the proportions are perfect, and I am obsessed with mint and it looks great with black and white. This sweater knitted up very quickly - it only took me four days. Andi Satterlund designs the cutest patterns.


The details are on my Ravelry Project Page.


And here is Soxy sitting on my sweater:
