Last night I almost picked up my Blue Sand sweater and started working on the sleeves and I told myself . . NO! You have to get that unicorn sweater finished.
It isn’t finished but it’s dang closed to being finished. All I have left to do is sew the right sleeve in and sew the sleeve and side seams and weave in a few ends and it will be done.
I hope it fits her and I hope she likes it but no matter what, I’m so happy to be done with it.
Lesson learned: Think about all the fiddly little things that have to be done before committing to make something.
I would gladly have knitted another whole sweater rather than do that fringe, sew on the ear (which I did twice because the first time it looked worse than it does now), sew on the horn, embroider the eyes. The worst part is over and that last sleeve and seams should be easy enough. I’ll get that done this evening.

She will love it and every stitch will be worth it! Adorable
Judy in MO says
It’s adorable! I’m sure she will love it and then it will feel worthwhile.
W Jordan says
Very cute and I’m sure Addie will love it.
It is adorable! And no matter how much you didn’t like making it – it turned out darling!
Nelle Coursey says
I think she will absolutely love it! You did a great job on it too!
Mary M says
Yay Judy! You get a gold ?? !!! Now it will be your luck ( or it would be my luck anyway) that Addie now loves penguins and not unicorns but I bet she will wear it anyway. And you have finished a fiddle project. Good job!
Mary M says
What happened to my gold star?
Judy Laquidara says
Hey! It was MY gold star . . you gave it to me! 🙂
It is really cute. I hope she loves it – there’s always that other man’s granddaughter, if she doesn’t, but since she likes unicorns, I think she will.
