So Close, But Yet So Far

Have finally finished the knitting portion of the Traveling Sweater.  Holy Moses has that taken a long time.  I can’t tell you how many hours of two by two ribbing and short rows have already gone into that thing.  Considering it was a Mother’s Day gift last year and I’m only now to this point–it’s a lot of hours.  Of course I also took detours to knit two stockings, read two Connie Willis books and teach the Sparkle Girl how to make jazz hands.  All important projects in their own right.

So here is where we find ourselves today:

Photobucket

I’m a little annoyed that there is SO MUCH yarn left over.  Sure some will get used up in sewing the darn thing together, but not even close to using that much.  Maybe I’ll make a belt to go with it?  Or a little sweater for the Sparkle Girl?  When there is this much left on a $30 skein of yarn you darn well want to use it all up.  It will be fun to see how it does after blocking.  Chances are very, very good that I’ll have to take it into the store for help sewing it up.  Not my strong suit anyway and the directions are already making my head spin.  Of course, it’s always easier when I have the actual item in front of me to help visualize what I’m trying to do.  We’ll see.

I’ve converted another knitter.  Seriously, where’s my toaster?  I should have won SOMETHING by now for all the people who’ve taken up the sticks because of me.  This warrants a sternly worded letter to someone.  Maybe Barbara Walker?  Welcome to the fiber fold Steve.  Happy Knitting.  I can’t wait to see all the yummy projects you’re going to cook up.
