my first machine knit sweater

this past summer i took my very first machine knitting course. it was amazing. the classese were taught by the talented and patient kathryn malik and jordana martin at the textile arts center in brooklyn. the studio was beautiful and instruction even better.

originally i had thought this sweater would make a nice birthday gift for mom, but after blocking it a bit too agressively, the now slightly felted and quite shrunken cardigan didn't exactly fit right. it was a learning experience...
