Off the Needles

For now. Just to be put back on the needles this evening.

I’ve been working on the boxy and buttony sweater since the end of April. That’s an exceedingly long time for me to have something on the needles. However, it’s also an exceedingly boring knit in the round with fingering weight yarn. So, It has gotten set aside for more interesting projects over and over.

But, last evening, I finally was able to complete the body of the sweater, and I couldn’t be happier with it! It fits nicely, and the yarn is amazing. So, now I just have the collar and the sleeves to knit. And buttons to order.

It seems almost odd to have this one so near completion. Especially since I’ve got a bunch of other projects going and quickly being completed.

Tonight, it goes back on the needles.
