Our home in Montreal was built in 1910. Between then and now, various things have been renovated. Badly, for the most part. The kitchen is functional but ugly - the colour palette is pre-cancerous lung. The front entrance was sliced and diced to make way…
Switching gears to sewing and knitting for myself again has been a bit of a shock to the system. Things take longer! Things have to fit properly in many positions, not just lying down! But I have strong motivation. For one thing, I don't want to buy a lot of new clothes in my current size when I'm still optimistic that I'll wake up one morning the size I was before I got pregnant. That's how it happens, right?
According to my Ravelry project entry on this, I cast on this sweater on November 24, 2011. My enthusiasm for this complicated twisted stitch behemoth waxed and waned over the course of five years, but I was always sure I would finish it eventually.
Due in 3 days. 2 projects in progress. This seems totally fine. Like the Autumn Rose, this is a mini version of a sweater I really enjoyed making for myself way back when. The original pattern is adult sized, and calls for Tanis Fiber Arts Aran Weight. So to create a baby version, I used fingering weight and US 2 needles and the stitch numbers for the fourth size.
