You may recall that about three hundred years ago I started a certain cardigan project with birds.
Well, I’m happy to announce that after nearly a year of frustrated knitting and two long hiatuses, I am officially almost done with this one.
[Cue maniacal crazed laughter.]
No, but seriously. I was looking for steeking tips in other people’s project notes and every time someone said “This project was SUCH a delight to knit” I wanted to stab them in the eyeballs a little bit.
But violence is bad.
Anyway, I finally faced my fears and hacked a project I’d been working on for nearly a year in half. I’m kind of proud. I’m also fairly certain that my steeking techniques are entirely made up. In any case, it seems to be holding remarkably well. All that’s left is the garter stitch edging. And weaving in the ends. And blocking. And seaming the underarms.
So possibly another year’s work.
