I haz them.
Right now I have two holiday present sweaters that are unfinished (okay, there is one that is also still in the sketch/swatch phase. But more on that in another post). First, the Lady of the Lake:
She is looking lovely, but needs 1 more sleeve and a collar. This jacket is a SLOG! The boucle yarn, the rows of moss stitch, the boredom of it, oh, it just goes on and on and ON. (ooh, just went to the Colorsong Yarn website and saw this new kit. Oh my).
The upside? It is gorgeous. I was knitting at the People's Republik in Cambridge over a few beers the other night, and strangers reached out to touch it and ooohed and aaaahed. Male strangers in their 20s and 30s. The slog pays off if it generates this kind of magic.
