Happy Thanksgiving! I’m just waiting until it’s time to take the looooong trek up the hill (~2 miles) to my MIL’s house!
Today I’m thankful for inspiration!
In late August I started a sweater in an attempt to finish NaKniSweMoDo (this is sweater #11!) and to destash. I started with a mystery yarn that I will swear to my grave was labeled Cascade 220, but it is definitely cotton. Anywho, I got as far as I could before I ran out of yarn, and decided to finish up with black cotton yarn that I have in abundance. I worked on it slowly and was really daunted by the ribbed sleeves.
Then on Tuesday I got together with Jocelyn and Marina, and decided to just finish the sleeves. I don’t know what possessed me to try it on, but I did, and I decided I hated the sleeve I was working on. I decided to rip it back and just make short sleeves. At that point I had one done, and the second was only 18 more rows and I was done with it later on Tuesday. I was SO happy to be done!
Later on Tuesday I was sewing in the last of the ends and telling Beth and Elizabeth that I was done – when I realized that I *wasn’t done*!!! I had totally forgotten that I had planned on creating a ribbed edging so there wasn’t an edge to the stockinette. Damn! I so didn’t want to do any more knitting on that project!
Wednesday morning I decided to go to Jo-Ann to buy some clasps or frog closures, and I had a brainstorm – *zippers*! So, after watching Glee last night I had a finished sweater! I’m so excited, and accomplished to be almost done with NaKniSweMoDo!
