I last blogged about this sweater in January. Since then I have made some progress but not really enough - it was started in September last year and has been a bit of a slog. It's turned into a bit of a vampire project, steadily sucking the enjoyment out of knitting for me, as I know it is there, WAITING, to get finished.
Sweater in January - since then I have ripped out and re-knit half of the sleeve and knitted another sleeve
The reason I'm finding it such hard going is that I have effectively gone 'off pattern' which requires more thought than I would like. It's not the kind of project I enjoy relaxing with in the evening, which is my usual knitting time. I'm not convinced it's going to fit that well either, plus I am fast running out of the lightest blue wool - eek!
I don't think I actually have too much more to knit (front and back neckline and ribbed neck band) but am devoting the rest of the day to knitting - I WILL finish this soon, I WILL. I'm not allowing myself to start anything new until this vampire item has been completed.
Do you ever find your unfinished knitted and sewn garments getting oppressive?
