That's me, feeling like a powerful grrl who fought right on through any diversity and finished NaKniSweMo just in time! Empowered by sheer will, against all odds, I DID it!! Forced Encouraged to keep going by the likes of Kay, my fellow Ewe-tah grrls and you, dear readers, I stuck it out and made it all the way to the finish line.
This lovely little sweater was pure product knitting...no enjoyable process involved. This diaphanous, delicate knit was very, very real and often misbehaved. While there was a bit of errata, the pattern wasn't the problem. It was the yarn...miles and miles and miles of tiny, fuzzy, ethereal and elusive FUZZ! And, its shades of gray didn't help the matter much. I do thank my lucky stars the sweater came out well in the end, but life (my life) is too short to ever knit with KSH again. It just is not my cup o' tea.
Ladedadeda...YAY!! It's a very happy day. Can you tell?
Let me just say, that Kay and Ann met their goal as I did knit (way) outside my lines. They had warned in the pattern that the yarn could be fiddly, but promised in the end that the finished product would be worth it. I'm just glad the sweater (and I) lived to tell the tale.
