I finished the Flugan cardigan yesterday. And my plan worked - I knitted it in one piece! It took some planning and some concentration - but I got it to knit up with minimal seaming! But, sadly, it’s too long. The yarn (Sandes Garn, Alfa) I have chosen is really heavy – even though I reached my gauge. I haven’t blocked it yet. (Check out my notes here).
Now I can hear my friend Christina telling me that I should stick it into the closet, close the door, and think about it. I had nightmares of it last night – I know! I should be having nightmares about moving - but no! I am dreaming of yarn and knitting!
Olive would probably say, “Are you going to wear it?” And that’s simple, no.
|This is it completed before frogging|
I look at the yarn as an investment; and I want my return in my investment. So I will “frog” it this weekend and cast on again. But I know that I will wear it! And that is all I want!
