I remember when I was younger and was told that it was time to get ready for bed, I usually responded that I was going to read "just one more page." I loved reading as a kid. Well, when it came to knitting up this sweater, I just needed to knit one more row, then I would get to such-and-such. My poor husband probably thinks that it takes me three hours to knit one row . . .
After unraveling all of my previous progress on this sweater, I really didn't think I would be finishing this anytime soon. Then I committed to including the sweater in my fall wardrobe plans - and I panicked. I can't knit a sweater in a month or so, especially while sewing up a storm. So, I found myself knitting constantly. I knit in the car (while my husband was driving) even if it was just a short ten minute drive, I knit during nap time, I knit after putting my daughter to bed, I knit while I was eating. Baby, all that knitting paid off, because I now have a finished sweater!
I love that this sweater goes not only with my fall sewing plans, but also the 1940's dress that I made this year. Basically, this sweater goes with most of my wardrobe so it is going to get worn all the time. I am pretty happy with this sweater, what more can I say?
