So, this was what my sweater looked like at 2:30 PM on Sunday, before I left to watch the men’s gold medal hockey game.
And this is what my sweater looks like this morning, after casting off last night.
I had two rows of button band to go by the time the Olympics were officially “over,” and that’s fine with me. I’m not going to grouse over the fact that I didn’t have yarn until two days in, or explain that I’m like, really busy – I knit very nearly all of a sweater in two weeks, and that’s good enough.
The sweater isn’t done done – I still need to figure out how I’m going to close it (if anyone knows where I can buy snap tape in Toronto, you get to be my BFF forever), weave in all the ends, and do blocking, but whatever. It is close enough to finished, and I am in love with this sweater and can’t wait to wear it, and that’s what matters.
