I've mentioned that I just have a few knitting goals this year, right? One of those goals was to finally cast-on, and finish a sweater for my husband. I've had the yarn since 2011 that I bought from a big Webs sale. But it's just one of those things that has been sitting in my stash, and my queue. You know how it is right? You put off knitting stuff for those who live with you because "they'll understand". You have other knitting deadlines to meet. Well, I'm sick of knitting like that. I've wanted to do this for so long for a few reasons;
|Sorry for the bad iphone picture.|
- I've yet to knit an adult size sweater. I know I'm up to it so I need to prove to myself that I can.
- It's nice to get things off your "to knit" list and get them done. It gives you a sense of accomplishment.
- My husband just plain deserves it. He supports my knitting habit and never [almost] complains. I love him and I want to show him that.
- He also needs more sweaters.
I've been knitting on other things, but I'm trying to be mostly monogamous so I'm mostly working on the sweater!
