Back in January, I declared 2013 as the Year of Completion. Well, I've been chugging along on my quilting UFO's (unfinished objects) and have made great progress. I've been pretty good about not starting new quilt projects, too. There have been a few garments and a couple of baby quilts for gifts, but I have really held back in starting new epic projects. (Beware, I have two big ones in mind that I will probably start in January 2014--maybe even when the clock strikes 12:01am....)
So, all of this is to say that I've been a very good girl. And, earlier this month, when I was so sick of staring at the same sewing projects that I had to wander off, I picked up some old knitting WIP's (works in progress).
I finished mittens that I started 21 months ago.
I finished a charity baby knit that I started 11 months ago.
And then I tried to finish a sweater that I started over five years ago.
Well, my knitting gauge is much smaller than it was five years ago, and I'm (ahem) not smaller than I was five years ago. So, the size I had cast on for was incorrect at this time and then I knit one front of a cardigan that was 2 inches narrower than the other side.
So, from this
I have another plan for the yarn and I'm already 11 rows into it. I'm cheating on my old quilting projects, but the fall winds demand that I knit, so I'm listening.
