can you believe it's been almost a year in the making! and this is unheard of for me. i definitely like to finish my projects, and it really bothers me to have them sit on a back burner for so long. but such is life, and this little treat had to be patient for me.
of course, i had that moment when i had broken the yarn somehow, or my magic knot probably slipped.... i totally had an episode there tears were most definitely shed. (another rarity for me... i never cry over my knitting). but i did... and i fixed it... and then set it in a bag to ignore for a few months more...
well i've picked up robin again... and i'm loving it as i did before! i'm so happy to see it nearing completion!
the body is almost finished, and then it's just the sleeves to tackle!
i'm sure i will love this sweater when it's all finished. especially knowing the time it has taken me! even with time outs, and waiting on the back burner.. these are tiny stitches!! you're looking at 3mm needles right there on the ribbing!
of course, it goes to show that when you really put your mind to something, and are persistent in completing your task... beautiful things come.
do you have a project that's just sitting by the wayside begging you to complete it? come on, grab a cup of tea, your needles, and let's get these projects finished! xo
