In between

In between knitting a huge variety of items with deadlines, I had a bee in my bonnet. I wanted to wear a cardigan. I really love this one that I made a few years ago, but it looked nicer sitting in my drawer than on me. It drove me nuts that it was way too big/long. I could chalk it up to it being one of my first knitting projects at the start of this addiction. All projects are a learning experience. It also could be that with knitting I had the opportunity to make a sweater that was long enough in the arms - so I over did it. Then I could also blame my ability to judge my body size or I may have been making this before I lost a lot of weight. Any and all of these reasons aside, I wanted to wear it. So one day this week I removed 9" from the bottom of the sweater and re-knitted the band. Now I will be happy to wear it.

Now back to my little projects and piles of yarn...

Yay! Good job - it's definitely worth it, isn't it!
