I finished “unknitting” the sweater I knit last month and that ended up being too big, re-rolled all the yarn and knit an entirely new sweater. New pattern, different size, fresh new beginning. I just finished it, blocked it, sewed most of it together, and added the collar. All that’s remaining is to finish up one sleeve seam (sleeve is sewn in, I just didn’t finish the long seam all the way to the wrist yet), and I have sew on the buttons and then add some loops to close them with.
My landlord came over to install new doors for my kitchen cupboards this morning (which have gone door-less since November, but that’s another story) and he brought his four year old son with him. He’s a delightfully charming boy (I’m talking about the son, now, not the landlord though he’s nice too) and after watching his dad for a while came to see what I was up to.
