The Swatch

Happy Mother’s Day!

happy mother's day! [365.336]

Happy Mother’s Day, mom. I love you very much. I hope you are having a wonderful day!

In knitting-related news, I’ve gone and done something completely silly. You know how I’ve been designing a sweater for a friend of mine, to knit for her in exchange for a quilt? Well, I’d planned on just doing some swatching, but then the other morning, in the shower, I had the brilliant idea of knitting a “first draft” sweater, in my size, so that I could test out my ideas on a sweater I can try on as I go (which, given the difference between my friend’s size and my own, wouldn’t be possible if I just knit her’s first). And this, my friends, is how much sweater I can knit with one skein of Cascade 220 and a day and a half of on-and-off knitting:

this is how much sweater

Apparently I’m quite quick with the knitting when I’m feeling stressed out about pretty much everything else in my life :)

Well, that’s all the posting I have time for today…I need to get back to working on a term paper. Have a great Sunday, y’all.

  1. Funny how that works … but hooray for the productivity and the terrific yardage of Cascade 220! I’m knitting a sweater in a yarn with a similar put-up, and it’s kind of blowing my mind how far a single ball will get me. (Wish I were knitting as quickly as you, though!)
