There is some sort of fairy magic conspiracy associated with stockinette stitch.

When I first started this sweater I knitted half of it in three days. And then it dragged on and on and on. And then there was some frogging. And then I was all done except for the sleeves. And then three months went by where I could hardly seem to put a dent in it.

And then I picked it up two weeks ago and finished it in two days.

Fairy magic, I tell you.

(Sorry for blurry, camera phone..)

This sweater took me two tries. I think the first time I started off knitting a size 36 which was waaay too big. It’s possible my gauge was wonky. When I started over I knitted a size 32 until the sleeve separation and then starting knitting a size 28 for the rest. I also added a few inches to the body.

And now I have to decide what color to make the next one in.. Maybe a ballerina pink? Or bright red? or green? (Knit ALL the colors!)

PS Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. I hope you know, I’ve been terrified of knitting anything larger than a bolero since I’ve only been knitting for about a year or so, but reading all of your awesome posts and seeing all of the beautiful projects come off your needles, I am inspired. Thanks!!
