It is finished.
After 4 months of work, which began basically when I found out that I was pregnant, I have completed my first sweater!
So you may all be wondering, why does Sacha have an H on his sweater? What’s his middle name? What is the Mustard’s real last name? Well, I am sorry to tell you that the answer to the H lies in none of those questions. Sacha wears an H as homage to Harry Potter.
I bought this knitting book in the summer, determined to learn how to make a sweater and that Sacha could wear it this winter. It was going really well until I started getting sick from the pregnancy. I then put down my needles and didn’t touch then until late October. I had almost completed the sweater when I decided to try it on him: the damn thing wouldn’t fit over his head. Aw crap. I think it was partially from the pattern, partially from my binding-off too tight. So I had to take apart the collar and make it larger than the pattern asked, then I was able to sew the piece together and voilà!
Pretty cute, if I do toot my own horn. And I have been known to toot on occasion…
