It’s finished!!! Woo!! I’m so excited/relieved, I could sing about it. Normally I’m all about the garter stitch. Miles and miles of mindless knitting where I don’t have to focus, I can just sit back, relax, and knit away. That’s my bread & butter. Usually. This one, however…not so much.
It’s not that I didn’t like the pattern. (It’s a Joji Locatelli pattern, so obviously I did.) It was a great knit on paper — easy, yet with a very construction details to make it look interesting. Simple, yet enough to (theoretically) keep my interest. However, this was not the case…
I’m not sure if I was just working on this one for too long that I got bored, or if I just had other projects on the brain…but this was a struggle. But (finally), after diligently working monogamously for a week — and very dutifully putting off swatching for a new sweater — I finished it. And it’s beautiful. And it’s cozy. But, most importantly, it’s finished.
(Thanks to my mom for modeling this for me. I much prefer staying behind the camera for this sort of thing… :P)
