WHEW! My endless Ditto stockinette trip, akin to driving from my home in Maryland to Aunt Dixie's home in Indiana, is finally over. About time! It seems like it took forever, but when I finally finished I realized I've already knitted more than half the sweater. Woo hoo!
Now I'm working on the first sleeve. The sleeves are only six inches long since they're joined into the yoke, so they won't take long. And then finally I'll get to work on the yoke which should be a lot more interesting and intellectually stimulating than what I've done thus far.
But most of all, I want to know if it fits! That will be hard to tell until I get the yoke on it. Then we'll see. Until then, prayers are heartily accepted.
I've got visions of other projects dancing in my head, too. I want to get back to the Fiesta Shawl, and then to the Posh V-Neck Cardigan that I'm going to knit along with my online knitting pal, Teresa. I ordered some Knit Picks Merino Style Yarn in Fairy Tale earlier this week. There's absolutely nothing - NOTHING! - in my stash that I could use for this project. *rolling my eyes*
Since I bought new yarn (that I'm not supposed to buy), I'm selling some stash yarn on eBay. That makes me feel a little less guilty. Just a little.
