My first sweater is almost finished! After a very, very long time - I got the wool for my birthday two years ago, and happily made about a third of it, only that then, christmas was approaching rapidly, providing a deadline for all knit gift ideas. So the sweater-to-be went into a year-long waiting stage, what with the hot summer that didn't make thick wool a tempting element of your free time, and time-consuming new jobs, and so on.
But now! Over christmas, it finally took shape. Now, only one sleeve missing and it will be done! Done! Done!
