I was knitting the sweater a year ago. In my quest this year to get some items off of the needles this year, I hauled it out about two weeks ago. I am going to admit here that it has been sitting on the corner of the couch as a reminder that it needed some sleeves, some buttons and some blocking. Something I bound and determined to finish before our knitting getaway at the end of February, especially since last year in Galena I was knitting on it.
The yarn, Mushshishi was purchased at Stitches Midwest in August of 2010 at the Mass Ave booth. It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to knit with it, but finally settled on another Knitting Pure and Simple pattern.
It's no secret I am a fan of Diane Soucy's patterns. They are top down which allows me to fit this odd body as I knit down and get a good length on them. Now, that I have completed the first sleeve I am anxious to finish the second one and figure out what buttons to put on this comfy sweater.
This is a three day weekend for me and my goal on the other side of it is to have this one completed.
