February Lady is finally finished. I love the color.
I love the yarn. It’s Classic Elite Newport. But don’t go looking for it, because it’s long discontinued. I’m still sad about that. I’ve been knitting with Newport since 1986. It’s the best cotton yarn ever.
I love the buttons, even though I just ran to JoAnn’s and grabbed the only ones that were the right size. I love the stockinette stitch on the top. It was supposed to be garter stitch. I hate garter stitch!
The lace is great! (And there are finally flowers blooming in my back yard! I wanted to make sure you noticed that.)
The sweater is perfect. Except for one thing.
It doesn’t fit.
I started it two years ago. I weighed a lot less two years ago. I may need to do something about that one of these days.
I sure wish knitting was an aerobic activity.
On to the next knitting project! Why would I let a little thing like a sweater that doesn’t fit deter me? Besides, I need to enjoy the quiet. My kids’ last day of school is Thursday. And they’ve been the Bickerson’s lately.
I’m going to go sit on my patio and drink coffee.
