Look at what I've been doing...
Soaking (yup, it bled. A lot).
Forgetting to sit down while I am talking.
It took me a year, but I did it. I made a sweater for me.
- Top-down Raglan Cardigan by Cosmicpluto If I recall correctly, I started with 91 stitches, and then increased for longer than the pattern indicated, to cover my ginormous shoulders. I also made the pattern about four inches longer than indicated (not entirely on purpose, but I'm pleased anyway).
- Plymouth Galway, nearly seven balls, colour 1890.
- 4.5 mm needles.
- Started February, 2007, completed February, 2008.
This sweater spent a long time hibernating, because I wanted to work on other things. If I had worked on it exclusively, it probably would have taken me about three weeks. Since last August, it's needed a sleeve and a half. I finished that final bit in two days, spread over two weeks.
I am quite pleased that I will be able to wear it yet this winter. Hey, there has to be one advantage to this miserable weather.
