You can see I wasn't lying about the one million little cables.
End result: it fits perfectly. Hard to tell, because I don't have buttons yet. So yes, technically, it is not 100% done, but when has a knitter ever let such a minor detail get in the way? I will be getting buttons tomorrow. Unfortunately the vintage ones picked up in September are way too large.
Yep, that's a post-it stuck to the back of my iphone.
It's my daily to-do list.
I know I can do a to-do list on my phone,
but it is nowhere near as satisfying as crossing things off on a piece of paper.
Plus the paper is so awkward that I remember to check it more often.
I wore the sweater to a Christmas get-together tonight because yellow cotton! So in season! But it was over a red pullover and I wore little Christmas wreath earrings so maybe that made it OK.
Speaking of hope... I have decided that everyone in my family needs a knit hat for Christmas, for various reasons. Yes, Christmas is only 12 days away, as of tomorrow. But one of them is getting a voucher for a hat in his college colors, once he actually picks a college, so technically I only need to knit three hats. It's do-able, now that this sweater is done. I am off to the yarn store tomorrow morning.
Hope springs eternal in the knitter's breast right before Christmas.
