Yo yo! How’s it going, everyone? I hope your weekends have been better than mine has been. Since Friday, I have had to deal with the following:
– a sore throat and mild fever with attendant whining;
– an expected quiet recovery day thwarted by my neighbour’s outdoor project, which consisted solely of cutting concrete from 9 AM to 5 PM right next to my living room window on the first open-window day since we took out the air conditioner; and
– a dead freezer and its rotting, smelly contents.
Very unpleasant indeed.
The real reason I’m here, though, is not to whine some more about my weekend. Instead, I come bearing glad tidings, for I have finally, finally completed the knitting of my SSKAL project! That’s right, everyone, I finished! On time! With mere days to spare before the deadline!
I am thrilled, obviously, that I’ve managed to squeek this one over the finish line with room to spare. However, this sweater isn’t quite ready to wear just yet.
I have about a million ends to weave in before it will be wearable, but the sleeves have been sewn in and the neckline is finished, so I’m calling this one done. I can confirm that it fits well and looks great with some of my skirts, which is thrilling, and I know this pullover is going to get a lot of wear this fall and winter. I promise to come back with some action shots, but before that happens, I have to do my time in end weaving purgatory. Wish me luck!
