We’re in the last week of hosting the CustomFit trunk show at Yarn Folk, so here’s a look at Alisa’s sweater–with a bonus picture of actual human in the sweater!
Yarn Folk: What’s your name, where are you located, and when did your shop introduce CustomFit to your customers?
Firefly Fibers: My shop is Firefly Fibers and I’m Alisa, the owner and do-er of just about everything in the shop – I wear ALL of the hats. 🙂 We are located in Beaver Dam, WI.
YF: How did you choose the sweater you contributed? How about the yarn?
FF: I selected Eddy for our sweater because it’s a fabulous first sweater or a quickish knit for an experienced knitter. The Eco Wool was also selected with a first sweater in mind because it’s economical and the heavier weight is great for sweater skill building (especially for the ease of seaming). Really, I love Eddy and I’ve actually had it on my “to knit” list for myself for awhile.
YF: What is your favorite thing about CustomFit?
FF: The smiles of the knitters when they finish their sweater and it fits. And I mean, REALLY fits. No matter shape or size, it does a beautiful job and with the fabric the knitter wants. Also, not having to customize on our end – I have a background in fashion and I love math, but I’d rather spend my time actually knitting.
YF: How many CustomFit sweaters have you knit, and do you have a favorite?
FF: I’ve knit 7 CustomFit sweaters (wow… I really need to get them on Ravelry) and I have 2 favorites – Featherweight in the Fibre Co’s Meadow and my most recent FO is Foyle’s Pullover in Julie Asselin’s Nurtured.
YF: Anything else you’d like to mention?
FF: CustomFit is addictive… I can’t look at a sweater now without thinking about how to CustomFit it!
