This sweater. Oh this sweater.
What can I say about this sweater? I don't know the exact date that I started it, but it was a long, long time ago. I think it was near two years ago. That's a long time in knitting years. Practically 20.
I took a basic sweater construction pattern, calculated a whole lot of math on it (obviously incorrectly, since I did they whole dang thing as a crewneck first, and it came out approximately elephant size, and I tore the whole thing out, but I can't talk about that any more.) found a pretty colorwork pattern that I liked, did some more math, and set on my way. I bought way too much yarn because I was deathly afraid of running out of the dye lot. I believe I have 2.5 skeins of the blue, and 1.5 of the white left over.
But I persevered! She traveled with me to hockey tournaments, dance competitions, visits to sissy's house, visits to the in-laws, countless chemo and hospital visits, and plenty of couch time.
