Anyone remember Mask
? (No, not the film; the sweater. Scroll down a bit!) This is my oldest knitterly WIP; I started making it for my brother's Christmas last year, and put it on hold as I wasn't going to have time to knit for my other brother, too. Parents got knit gifts last year; everyone else got bought ones. This is now officially a year old, as I started planning early last year! I decided that this would be Stuart's birthday gift instead; his birthday's at the end of July.
He's coming to visit on Wednesday, and I'd really like to be able to present him with his pressie when he gets here. The front is now done:
And both sleeves:
And the back looks like this:
So my schedule is as follows:
- Today (Monday): finish back, wash and block
- Tuesday: let it dry; start seaming
- Wednesday: finish seaming, knit neckband.
Because I'm knitting in Cork on 8mm needles, this is a quick knit. Because of the intarsia, it isn't. I *might* make it; I hope so. Further bulletins as events warrant...
