A Long and Bumpy Road

Today is Knit Wednesday when I get to meet with my knitting group and kick back, laugh, joke, eat and knit a bit so I thought I'd share pics of the turtleneck that I FINALLY finished a little over a week ago. It only took me about a year to get this thing done and you can't really call it a turtleneck since I ran out of yarn before I could properly finish the neck.

Oh well... done is done and I am D.O.N.E.


It looks quite handmade and a bit wonky as anything I seem to finish does, but no matter I'm flowing with it.

Oh and please ignore my lumps and bumps too. Blame it on the yarn. Okay? Hmm..Thanks.

My next project is an attempt at an infinity scarf I won't be trying another sweater for a long while. I just hope this doesn't take an infinity to finish.

Best,
Kwana


P.S. old glasses in the pic. Waaa I miss them.

Oh wow. You did a fantastic job and you look great in it! Which is really cool since it's not like you got to try it on before you made it. LOL.

HEY!! That's really nice!! whenever someone tells me they're knitting a sweater, I picture the worst case scenario and put on my fake enthusiasts face. But I don't have to, that's really nice!

Debra said...

Hey I LOVE your sweater! Great job. I would love to crochet an infinity scarf. I'll have to look for a pattern. I recognize the coffee table-this must have been you last week at P's home.

I am so impressed that you made that. All I can knit is a scarf. And my scarves are always wonky.
