Last weekend, while watching Dexter, I decided it was time to face the music and admit that my OWLS was just not working. It was too big, too baggy, too long … all around just plain wrong. So I got bold and started frogging.
By casting on for something new. It’s been pretty liberating, really: unravelling one sweater to make another. And the funky Gaughan-tastic construction had me guessing for a while. Is that an arm? How is that an arm? Is that an arm for dwarves?
It seems that I was stuck in small-project accessory mode for a long time, and now I’m hankering after some handknit sweaters. Which is great, except for that Nashville’s winter is probably going to be ending pretty soon. Eye on the prize: research in Germany. In the winter. No idea when/if that will happen, but it will require knitwear.
C’est la vie. I’m still excited about my sweater. And EcoWool.
