This sweater is bigger now ……. I am at the stage where the front and back are joined to knit in the round for eeee gods 14″ ….. and I may do it even longer. I did the weird wet block of the back piece and the front piece after both were 8.5 inches long. First the back, let it dry, pick up stitches for the front, cable cast on, pick up more stitches ……. etc. I like the stitch pattern but now it’s down to the grind of continuously knitting the same thing over and over and over …….. if I drank I would drink enough to make this not seem boring.
After this cute little pink number, I have another sweater or two in the wings and one for which I need to buy yarn. But I’m going to slow down on the sweater stuff ……. back to socks for a bit to retain my sanity. I only need so many sweaters.
It has come to my attention that yarn is expensive. Some yarn more expensive than others – some yarn ridiculously expensive. So – even if I can keep buying yarn in sweater quantities – I’m going to take a break from that and let the pressure out. Woman cannot live by yarn alone. Seriously.
A short trip to the grocery store is over – I could go sit down and knit – the damn thing is screaming at me laying there in the bag. Sigh. Maybe tonight. Not today – today – I’m taking time off.
