I’m enjoying my correspondence with other CustomFit shops, and I hope you are, too! Today we are featuring Harbor Island, a V-neck cardigan.
Yarn Folk: What’s your name, where are you located, and when did your shop introduce CustomFit to your customers?
JH: Judi Hederich at My Sister’s Yarn Shop, Green, Ohio. After visiting Yvonne at Natural Stitches last March we introduced CF in late July of last year. We have measured 42 knitters in eight months.
YF: How did you choose the sweater you contributed? How about the yarn?
JH: I wanted to knit a basic cardigan for my first CF sweater. I chose the Rowan Pure Wool SW for ease of care. I chose the relaxed fit. After knitting it I realized that I am not really a relaxed fit person and did the Mine Hill for my second sweater in the average fit and prefer that fit.
YF: What is your favorite thing about CustomFit?
JH: Fit. Fit. Fit.
YF: How many CustomFit sweaters have you knit, and do you have a favorite?
JH: I have knit two and am in the process of two more. I have a customer who has knit six.
YF: Anything else you’d like to mention?
JH: This program has made me look at knitting sweaters differently. In looking at other patterns I can now see how I can make adjustments to make them fit better.
