I. Am. Going. To. Finish. This. Sweater.
The Station at Alnmouth, a Classic Elite pattern from 1995. Which I’ve been picking away at for years. Possibly since 1995. I don’t remember; I don’t keep track of things like that.
The back, both fronts, and all but an inch of one sleeve are done. That’s the sleeve, above. I know, it’s hard to tell what the pattern is in that photo, but the whole thing is encrusted with vines and bobbly-flowery things. There’s a complicated chart, which involves lots of squinting. That’s not why I stopped working on it.
Sometimes, I put things down and turn them into UFOs for silly reasons. With this sweater, the task of measuring the back (which is quite oversized — it’s a one-size pattern) to figure out how long to make the drop sleeves seemed annoying. Into the UFO bag it went. And stayed there until I realized that I really need another cardigan, and this one’s almost finished. So I measured. Which took all of five minutes, including running downstairs for my favorite sheep tape measure.
I can be dramatic sometimes. The rumors are true.
Now that the Drama of the Measuring is over, I’m ready to finish it. Watch this space!
