I medaled in Tubey
I finished faster than I expected, given that I changed from English to Continental and from mirror image to normal knitting just in time for the competition.
I made the small size but shortened it by more than TWO inches! I am a long-legged, short-bodied creature, I tell you. Like Kermit the Frog. How appropriate that I made a green sweater. I made the sleeves a little long just because I can never find sleeves long enough for me and dammit for once I don't want to see my wristbones.
I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and although it's nice and soft, boy it sure looks like it wants to pill already. Has anyone else had a problem with this?
I'm happy that I took the KO challenge because I've felt a little bad about my UFOs lately. Samus still languishes in my knitting basket and probably will for a while. I've moved on to a cotton sweater for my daughter and am working up some socks in some handspun. I completed this in 15 days without really losing any sleep or ignoring my family that bad. A miracle.
I've really enjoyed seeing everyone else's sweaters. For those of you who haven't finished, press on! You can do it.
