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!)
