Dusting Off an Old Sweater Project
After going back and forth on making a decision for my next big crochet or knit project, I decided to pull out a dusty, unfinished sweater and give it another go. When I found it in my cabinet I went through the initial stages of finding a forgotten knitting project: Step 1: "Cool! A sweater! I love sweaters." Step 2: "Wait a second...make that half a sweater." Step 3: "Maybe I could turn it into a vest?" Vests are cool, right?" Step 4: "Gah. I guess I should actually finish this thing..."
And so it begins. Almost three years later, I've decided to pick up where I left off on the Heartigan Cardigan (best name ever) and see how it goes. I would hate to waste a perfectly nice half-a-sweater and that big ball of yarn. Hopefully I won't let three years go by again before I finish, but we'll see. I mean, I made the fawncho. I should be able to finish this too! I knit the last few rows of the cardigan body the other night and cast on the first sleeve yesterday. I think this sweater is going to be worth the wait. It has heart-shaped elbow patches and everything!
I still really want to start a new crochet blanket, some knit socks, and the Princess Diana sheep sweater...and...uh oh. I'm getting distracted again. This sweater could take awhile.
What unfinished projects do you have sitting around the house? Have you started anything new lately?
