Despite Ross’ pessimism, I am making progress on the sweater. I used the rainy, rainy day we had here to finish up the back of Ross’ sweater. Ross has informed me that many have tried to make him a sweater, but none have succeeded. I, of course, take that as the thinly veiled I-want-a-sweater challenge that it is.
I think I have a permanent callous on my left thumb from the change between knitting and purling and trying to make sure that the sweater is the right tension – it’s easy to have the change stitches come all loose, and that just looks like crap.
Here’s what the sweater looks like length-wise. It should hit Ross around mid-hip. It still needs to be blocked, but I used what I learnt during my finishing class last winter to sew in the ends as I go. I hate doing it all at the end, so I do it as I finish a piece – it just seems much more manageable.
Anyone else have any fun projects they want to show?
