The Watergarden sweater is a men's fair isle sweater from Interweave Knits. I cast it on back in 2008 out of Knit Picks Palette and got maybe, I dunno, 4-5" done. And then I set it down and never, ever came back to it.
Long-time friends of the show will note that it has appeared in every single February is for Finishing post since. And even as recently as this past February I was still protesting that I was gonna knit it someday.
There comes a time in every knitter's life when she needs to get a frickin' grip, and y'all that time has come and come again.
So, after 6 years of protestation and hand-wringing I ripped that sucker out.
Now I just need to figure out what the heck to do with eleventeen tons of Palette. A variation on Funky Grandpa perhaps?
Meanwhile, Alice carries on. I'm a good 4" into the stockinette and am at the stage where the end is both in sight and so very, very far away.
Maybe a beer will help.
