Another knitting project done! I finished the rather ugly old-school sweater about a week ago, but I have been waiting to have my lovely husband take a picture of me in it. (To prove to you that it actually fits!) We took the picture this morning…he was being a bit of a lazy camera man…and then, as only a husband can say, informed me that there was no way I would want the picture on the internet. Supposedly my hair was crazy and I did not look blog worthy. So you get the sweater on a hanger. I’m so glad it is done!!! 7 years in the making. In all, it turned out pretty good. I probably should have done a couple more rows on the neck, but I was so scared it was going to turn into a mock turtle type neck that I made it a little short. Tony also informed me that the neck is somewhat square. I said I liked square necks. 🙂
This morning I was also naughty and took a trip to the library before Elias got up. Just what I need. More reading. My brother would make fun of me for my reading material choices, but I know what I like. Christian historical fiction. I’m a sucker for it.
And JUST finished, are my first ever knitted socks. I love them! I keep telling Tony he is jealous, he just hasn’t realized it yet. (He’s currently scrambling to update our March Madness brackets because I have declared that I am whooping him. HA! I really think I might be.)
I think it’s funny that Tony seems to be really fighting against your sweater! Poor little garment! Way to go for finishing it. I have waaaay too many unfinished projects that have been completely ignored. Great socks too, handmade socks are the best!
In my defense, most of my mockery is honest and fun loving. I definitely appreciate the hard work that went in to the sweater, and look forward to going out on the town (on different sides of the street) with Ings wearing the sweater. HAHA! Really, its not that bad, she can pull it off!
