I think this is where I may have started to go wrong. Now he has an opinion for everything from exact length, to zipper vs. buttons, to design motif, and I am listening to him. I know, it will be his sweater, but it will be mine as well since I am designing it. Where do you draw that line? I want him to be happy with it, but it is a present that I am going to be spending a lot of time on.
And my brother may be notoriously fussy, but I did explain to him that if I take the time to design and knit a f***ing sweater for him, he will f***ing love it.
I guess I may be a little cranky today. I have been pretty knocked out by the flu for most of a week now and although I have gotten some knitting done, I have managed to take care of very little else.
Right now, my socks are the only thing that I have on the needles that isn't a design project. I have moved from the instep decreases to the foot now and feel like I am in the home stretch with this first sock. I will be teaching myself how to graft with Kitchener stitch for the toes! I am actually kind of excited. I love how seamless Kitchener stitch can look and I know it frustrates some people, but I seem to enjoy some of the more frustrating aspects of knitting.
|So close to done!|
And now, the moment people have been waiting for: The Drawing!
