It might not feel quite like real knitting, but 20mm needles make for a really, really quick sweater. Less than 72 hours after starting, I have an FO. Schedule as follows: Wednesday: Knit back Thursday: Knit first sleeve, check remaining yarn (halfway done now, after all), start knitting front. Friday: Finish knitting front; knit second sleeve. Seam shoulders and knit collar. Saturday: Finish seaming and sew in ends. Get boyfriend to photograph result.
suffer through knit up, and then I will probably sell the darn needles. On the other hand, I really quite like the sweater. It is a wonderful, warm, easy-wear knit that would probably look better on me if I were about 2 stone lighter, so that the two extra stone that the chunky fabric lends to me were cancelled out. But I don't care; it's comfy and warm (oh, boy, is it warm!) and has made a significant reduction in the volume of my stash.
