The Great Humongous Sweater
October 2, 2007 § 1 Comment
Some of you may remember the chronicle of the Great Humongous Sweater. It was my first and lamest attempt to knit a fair isle sweater for my husband that ended up being Gianormous. It was a sad, funny, disappointing, frustrating, and learning experience.
Well… one year ago, while at the beach, the whole lot was frogged.
Last week at the beach, again, the last stitch was knit into the last remaining sleeve. I swear, if this sweater ever becomes wearable, it will truly be a miracle.
Now, ends need to woven in. Steeks need to be cut. The collar needs to be knit. Lord, I’m afraid to continue. Just so you all know… there will not be a 3rd re-knitting of this sweater. If this time doesn’t work out, it’s destined for the trash. Good-bye and good riddance. And I’m not sure I will ever try to knit fair isle again.
But if it does work out… there is this one vest that I’m dying to make. Ahem…. no pressure or anything.
