I finished the body of the sweater on Sunday, one day before the deadline. I wove in all the ends on the final day of the challenge.
Mission accomplished. I couldn’t be more pleased.
Look, even that pesky hem stayed flat.
I only had to frog a couple of sections, so the tears were minimal.
Because I started several days late, there was a little sweat going into the challenge and especially so those last few days.
The blood came from when I impaled myself in the thigh with a double pointed needle whilst working on the second sleeve.
But it is finished (and my bruise is healing nicely).
And all that remains to make this year is a sweater for Chickadee as well as a handful of Christmas gifts. I’ll save the advent calendar for another year.
Whew. Break over.
