So I am apparently starting the year off with more "no stash acquistion" knitting. I knit this great sweater, even did some really tricky things......
I repaired this hole that was in the sweater from
things that went awry while traveling.
Lovely job eh?
Of course I meant to cut those ends, but figured I do that later.
Then there was the great seaming job, I mean, really look at this......
Worth every penny of a Lucy Neatby video.
Unfortunately, the finished sweater looked hideous, yes hideous, drawing attention to my flaws and downplaying my assets. Even the TAO looked and only said "Did You make That?" (because of course, it's perfectly acceptable to buy ugly clothing).
I decided that rather than have it guiltily shoved in the back somewhere I would reclaim the wool immediately. Because 6 skeins of slightly fuzzy yarn is better than bad sweater mojo. So I watched TV and unraveled the entire thing. (Angel food cake helped, Loopy on the other hand hid). Now, in 2010/2011 when I decide to make something from this yarn, it will be ready.
