I’m getting close on my 3rd FO of 2006 – a cardigan sweater made from Big Kureyon. Truthfully, I am way more excited about this than should really be considered legal, but… all things considered, it truly is an object of beauty.
I have finished the 2nd sleeve. All I have left to do is make the hood, sew the whole thing together, weave in the ends and sew in the fancy riri zipper I bought. Possibly using the sewing machine, even – which is way more exciting than I’m making it sound (I’m also learning to sew on a machine).
And then I’ll have a sweater. That I can wear around and be very proud of!
I am SO totally hoping to finish this sweater this week, but I think that’s pushing it. I have a cubic f-load of homework due in the next two weeks, as well as a fulltime job, a sewing class to participate in on Sundays, and… well… considering I have approximately six hours a night with which to balance knitting, homework, household chores and watching TV, I’m not feeling like I’ll be able to finish this week.
Maybe in two or three weeks.
I’d like to wear my sweater to the sewing class – it gets so cold in there, and I’d much rather wear something I made as opposed to the grey hoodie I wear all the time.
