Now, back in July I did a post about starting to knit Spud. You can find that post here: Spud! At that point I had just started Spud and was working on his body. I've now completed Spud and let me say that I love him!
The body was actually the slowest part of the knit, especially with doing all those twisted loops to create his wool. I was pretty motivated to finish his body so that I could be done with those twisted loops. I might have even said things such as "I don't know if I would knit this again....!" However, now that some time as passed since I knit him, I can say that I would definitely knit him again.
This knit along also served as a great lesson in gauge. In the photo below, three were knit with Spud & Chloe Sweater on size US 4 needles. The littlest sheep was knit using Spud & Chloe fine. We all do truly have our own unique tension (gauge) that we knit at :o)
Ravelry Project Page: Spud!
Needles: US 4 (3.5 mm) double pointed needles (Knitter's Pride Karbonz)
Yarn: Spud & Chloe Sweater in Ice Cream, Toast, & Turquoise
Approx. time frame: 7/13 to 8/20 - Note that it didn't take that long to actually knit; I'd estimate the total knitting time at less than a week if you worked on in throughout the week.
