Anne Weinheimer  Hand dyed, hand painted, handspun--yarn & fiber

There is a little furry reason that I’m making slow progress on this sweater!

“Forever Sweater” and kitty’s favorite spot! That’s ok, Scout, I’ll work on another WIP until you decide to move!

Knitting on a sunny summer Sunday! With my last sweater finished and the yarn for the next one just out of the dyepots and having its bath, I’ve returned to this sweater I’ve been knitting for my son, forever...the “Forever Sweater”. He doesn’t know about it, so it’s our little secret, ok?

Someone jammed all the couch knitting into this basket. So he could put his feet up on the couch. Really?! Everyone knows that the purpose of a couch is yarn storage!
My evening plans: yarn sorting and Netflixing!.

The good news: It’s finished!!
The learning experience: It has about 10” of positive ease! I swatch-I swear, I swatch-but I must knit really loosely when it comes to the actual sweater knitting.
I like a comfy fit, but this is way over the line into “would look nice on an elephant”!
Next step: Weave in the ends, then give it a bath and a few rounds in the dryer. I have nothing to lose, even if the dryer experiment goes badly!
The best part: I really like the collar I invented!
The other best part: Figuring out what colors to dye the yarn for the next sweater!
