Guys. I feel like I have been working on this sweater for. ever. Uggh! According to Ravelry, I cast on July 22, so forever is not too much of a stretch. I’m so ready to be done. I started with the sleeves. Easy wins. Less likely to sputter out with 3 inches to go. And let’s face it: 3 inches of sleeve is a whole lot less than 3 inches of sweater.
Perry is a gorgeous pattern. I may even knit it again someday. But, guys, it is 33 inches long! That’s almost a yard! A few weeks ago I made an executive decision to shorten the thing by 2 inches. 31 inches is (in reality) not much less than 33, but somehow it seems more manageable. I am right now on inch 17. The waist decreases are finished, and I’m just about to start the waist increases. The idea of increasing makes me want to sob a little.
Help! How’s a knitter to finish when she has (almost) lost the will to knit!?!
