So this fall, I started two sweaters. One for me, and one for Ross. I don’t want to harp on things that I haven’t done, but let’s say that it’s a good thing it wasn’t a cold winter, because Ross would have frozen. I, however, would have been mostly warm, except for my arms.
I’ve managed to knit something rather nice – I’m quite fond of the pattern and the wool, which I picked up in Nova Scotia last summer. However, what I’m less sure about now is finishing it. The first sweater that I knit, my wedding shroud, didn’t require any assemblage, and it was under the tutelage of a most excellent teacher. The second sweater turned out fine, but after wearing it for a winter, it’s come to my attention that it could have been finished a bit better.
So the time is coming when this sweater will be finished – and I don’t want to make a mess of it, so I’ve signed up for a course on how to do it. Yes, I’m going to let someone else tell me how to do things. I’m hoping this won’t end poorly.
