This poor blog has been neglected long enough! I've decided that it's time for me to get back into the swing of things and post more often. I figure a WIP post is a nice easy way to ease back into it (especially since there are only two of them!)
I started this sweater at the beginning of December with the hope that I could finish it in time to wear for Christmas - HA! I forget what derailed me in December (think it could have had something to do with all the craziness that accompanies the holidays?), but it obviously did not get finished in time. It didn't help that every time I pick this sweater up, I lose my ability to count!.
Once I gave up that silly dream, I thought that I could certainly finish it in time to wear to SPA. Again - HA! I'm leaving tomorrow for SPA, and as you can see by the picture, there's not a chance in Hell that I'm going to have it finished by then! (although I have knit about 1/3 of a sleeve since this picture was taken.)
I really have no ide why I've had such a time with this sweater; the pattern is well written with easy to read charts. I can't tell you how many times I had to rip out rows and redo them!
I'm not sure if I dare to hope to finish it in time to wear at least once this season; after all, I still have to be able to count while doing the bottom of the sleeves.
Some close ups:
This is supposed to be my February pair of socks for SAM9. I only have four days left and this is the first sock; do you think I'm going to make it? I know I can finish this sock tonight and I'll probably get the ribbing done for sock #2 tonight as well. Finishing a sock in 4 days is certainly possible, but whether I'll actually do it or not remains to be seen.
That's it for tonight - have a good one!
