"This is the sweater that never ends,
It just goes on and on my friend!"
So I said in my WIP
post that this cardigan needed it's own post. I started it when I was fairly new to knitting a few years ago after I completely the customary hat, scarf, and kerchief. In order to meet the required gauge, I have to knit on size three needles. When I started it, all I really knew were bamboo straight needles so I was knitting away on long, thin bamboo needles. It didn't take long until I broke one. So I learned about circular needles and got a pair of plastic ones and just kept on going. I finished the back and moved on to one of the front sides. And proceeded to break one of the plastic needles. I thought it was just a fluke so I bought another needle of the same kind, thinking surely it wouldn't happen again. Right. Not too long after that I broke that plastic needle and have since sworn off anything but metal. It is coming along nicely on Prym
The problem is with size three needles it is really a slow sweater. I stopped for a little while to finish a sweater for my son two years ago that turned out so ugly I cannot even photograph it (it was my first official sweater!) So I came back to this one. It is my "go to" when I need something to work on in the dark movie theaters or when getting a pedicure and looking at a pattern would distract from relaxation! That is pretty much the only times it gets worked on now. I love it but I don't have the patience to wait for the satisfaction of a finished project. I am unfaithful old sweater. But I am okay with that.
The pattern is from the Stitch and Bitch
book that I used to teach myself how to knit. Someday it is going to look beautiful!
