Kermit the FrogThis is Kermit the Frog. Allegedly, I learned to speak English while watching hours of Sesame Street and the Muppets. Among all the muppets, I liked Kermit the most. I think I called him “Kermity”, (as in, first name Kermity, last name Frog) for a long time before someone thought to correct me. So he holds a special place in my heart.

 

This is Kermit the Sweater. It’s made from some violent green silk noire yarn that I got from Amy at a super fun yarn swap that Staci organized a while back. I actually finished it a few months ago, but only got around to posting it. Ahh, the joys of procrastination. Kermit sweater1Kermit sweater2This is the first knitted garment I’ve made with sleeves. At some point, I thought the sleeve cap wouldn’t fit in the armscye. Huge sigh of relief when it did. The yarn shed like a bad skin disease while I was knitting it, but a good wash and blocking made it better. Kermit the sweater actually fits pretty well, although the fit around the shoulders could be a little bit looser. Overall, I think it turned out quite well.

Pattern: Cropped Top, Knit Simple Spring/Summer 2006
Yarn: violent green silk noire from Amy – I still have a lot of this yarn left. Size 8 Denise interchangeables.
Modifications: I shortened the sleeves by about 3 inches (the pattern was written as a long-sleeved top), lengthened the body by about 2 inches. I also made a 3 stitch I-cord closure tie instead of the crocheted one the pattern called for.
