While trying to understand my feelings, and decide the best approach (if any), I realize just how much I longed to wear Miss BB. She is warm, soft and beautifully blue! The elegance of design, texture and fabric were coming together to create one gorgeous cardigan and, in addition, I couldn't (quite) abandon the desire to finish 11 sweaters (since I knew 12 was out of the question).
By the end of the evening the collar extension was nearly finished and first thing Sunday morning I picked it up again. The last few rows knit up quickly and immediately after I cast on the second front. Since then I've worked on it non-stop (with the occasional nod to the mitts) and I can see the end is in sight. One more sleeve and Miss BB and I will be dancing toward the finish line. The return of "the process" is such a good feeling and with it comes renewed joy.
Beaverslide yarn has been my favorite worsted for several years and I've knit four sweaters in a variety of colors and patterns. They are warm, wonderful sweaters and I love them all. Maybe it's time to stash a little more.
