This poor sweater . . I have called it everything except the right name . . Tea with Bread and Butter, Tea with Toast and Jam. The correct name is Tea with Jam and Bread.
It is finished and I am so in love with it. It has not been soaked and blocked yet but the ends are woven in.
I seem to have this innate knack for being able to do exactly what the pattern says, without even knowing what I’m doing or why, and therefore, I don’t usually have problems with patterns. If I try to reason out why I’m doing something, or if I read ahead, I get totally confused but if I just take step 1, then step 2, then step 3 and don’t worry about any future steps, it always works out. This pattern is quite well written and I never had a question. Somehow, I did put the pockets on the back side the first time . . don’t ask me how that happened because I thought I had everything marked. There is a difference in the front and back so I had to rip back and I considered not including the pockets the second time but I wanted them so I did them . . on the front.
I know I shouldn’t but I may wear it before it’s soaked and blocked because winter is going to leave before I get to wear it otherwise.
