Well…better late than never, I guess

Finished about two minutes ago.

So where do I get the button that says “I tried my best but fell short by two hours and forty-eight minutes”? Maybe I should have chosen something with bigger gauge. Or, maybe I should have stayed up until 5am last night instead of 3am.

It was the hood that done me in – damned thing is about as big as knitting half the body. I also had never done set-in sleeves before or sewn a seam. All the sweaters I’ve done so far were knit in the round. So, this was very much a challenge for me on many levels – nevermind that the gauge was 4.5 stitches to the inch on size 7’s.

Oh well. At least I have a sweater out of the whole thing. I’ll post more details later – I need a nap. See below & extended entry for details & more photos.

But first…there’s one more thing I must do… *goes over to sidebar, rips down timer, throws it on the ground and jumps up and down on it a few times*. There. I feel much better now.
