Two sweaters worth of loose ends is a lot of loose ends.
I swear I don't know why there are so many. It doesn't seem like there should be when you are knitting.
Daughter gave me one of "those" calls when I sat down to start weaving them all in. By the time she was done her rant they were all done. Sweet.
I hate blocking sweaters more than I hate weaving in ends. They are so heavy and hard to wrangle.
After lots of patting out I think I have these two where they need to be. His needs length. Mine needs width. Sigh.
With only the buttons to sew on, I think it's time to think about what's going on the needles next. I have had a 30 year quest going on for the "one"-sweater wise. I'm getting closer but I'm not there yet. Big Red up there is going to be another cardi. I really want a plain red cardi. I've knit several and they went out in the garbage, they were that bad. Bad yarn, bad fit, just bad.
This Knit Picks pullover kit could be the one If I take what I've learned from my Custom Fit Craftsy class and use it to make something that fits. The real problem is that a sweater takes me years to finish and by that time I've grown out of it. Small, medium. large? How about middle aged spread?
