For Christmas we (Mom, Shannon and I) all pick a sweater pattern we like, (3 different patterns) we purchase yarn for our sweater and photocopy the pattern. We all knit a different part of each sweater.
- Mom knits the front of her sweater, I knit the sleeves and Shannon knits the back.
- I knit the back of Shannon's sweater, Mom knits the sleeves and Shannon knits the front
- Shannon knits the sleeves on my sweater, I knit the front and Mom does the back
When we are done we all have a completed sweater that has been loved by each of us. None of us got bored with a pattern because we worked with three different patterns and yarns. If we all knit the correct gauge there should be no problem seaming the sweaters. And (you will love this part) 3 gifts of blood sweat and tears and it will only cost us the price of one sweater each. We all pick our own pattern and yarn so everyone gets a sweater they love.
Again blogger's spell check program makes me giggle as it wants to replace the word 'knitters' with the word 'janitor's'.
