I’ve reached a milestone!
The main part is finished and bound off. I love it and it fits perfectly! When making a sweater I always waffle between thinking it’s going to be huge and too small. I could have sworn this one was going to be huge and kept measuring and trying to convince myself it was going to be fine. Then I’d look at the measurements and think it might be too small but I am very happy with the fit.
The back is a little longer than the front and there’s a gentle curve. It’s kinda hard to tell from the photo but I’m glad I went ahead and followed the pattern and made the back longer.
I understand the concept of finishing a UFO means finishing a UFO but I need a break from this one. My guess is that the sleeves can be done in two days but I’m going to work on something else today and then maybe I’ll et the sleeves started tonight and then get started working on those tomorrow or Wednesday.
After trying this sweater on today, I’m so happy that I knit.
