In Which I Finish the Red Sweater. Again.

You’ll be thrilled to hear that the red sweater is done, and after this post you never have to hear about it again.

Remember the red sweater?  It was my Knitting Olympics sweater.

The sweater that was so huge on me I finally frogged the whole thing and started over?

That was really a low point for my knitting career, but I’m so glad I did it. Last month I was knitting at my friend Ruth’s house, and we spent a while looking at what I had left to knit (two sleeves and the button bands) and the wool I had left (three small balls) and weren’t sure I was going to make it. Happily, I found another two miniscule balls (like 8 rows of sleeve on each one– not much!) and just made it with scraps to spare. For a moment, I thought I was going to have to use the ends I trimmed (after weaving them in a bit) to finish the button band.

But it fits well, and I love it, and I enjoyed the yarn as much the second time through as much as I did the first.
Do you have a Finished Object to show off?

  1. P.S. The title of this post reminds me of A Room With a View. I watched it again the other night and fell in love all over again. 🙂 I’ll never forget you giving me the “blow-by-blow” the first time I visited your apartment in college. Love to you.

  2. P.P.S. Do I leave more comments on your posts when I have comps to study for? A good friend would never point out such a thing, I’m sure.
