Yesterday was an icky day. It snowed, iced and rained. The timing of it was pretty bad. I had to pick N up at school at noon mid snowing. I got nothing done unless you count TV viewing. I’m calling it a down day: a day to relax and recharge.
Fortunately I got to knit. That really does improve whatever kind of day it is. I completed the start of the front of Hug and just barely start one side of the back. As I said yesterday I went down a needle size from the pattern and I’m much closer to near gauge. I’m very happy with the feeling of the fabric. Cascade 220 in garter stitch is heavenly. I’ll make a real decision on how it’s going once I get the whole thing on one needle.
It’s been a while since I’ve knit an adult size sweater. I’m not sure my heart is fully invested yet. Failure is a possibility. But I think I’ll keep going, knitting stitch after stitch, in the hope that there will be something wearable at the end.
