I started with 6 skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas worsted cotton yarn and a lot of anxiety. If I'm honest, I know that I do better with small, quick knits, and I wasn't sure how I'd do with such a big project. (And I'm actually still wondering...)
I've used up 1 whole skein of yarn so far, and what I've got looks like the pictures in the pattern, so I'm thinking I'm still on the right track.
What you're seeing in this last picture is the funnel neck of the sweater. See the 3 neat button holes? I'm feeling pretty good about those.
The things that I'm not feeling so stellar about are the nearly-200-stitch rows I'm currently working on. Each row is like it's own formidable hill to climb, requiring several mini pep talks along the way. Because of that, I took a little detour and knitted myself a headband last night to fulfill my need for instant knitting gratification. You can check it out on my Instagram page if you're interested.
I fully intend to soldier on with this project and I cannot wait for that moment when I finish it and get to try it on!
Until then... happy knitting!
