My current knitting has been less than stellar. Actually, it's been less than sweater. I was working on a the Little Linear baby sweater. It's knit in one piece, blah, blah, worsted weight "it will only take two minutes" sweater. Honestly, it is all that, but in my hands, it swiftly turned into two balls of yarn, a lump of off needle stitches and a bunch of failed hopes.
Ah, how do I feel about that? As it turns out, not so bad, but it's a long story.
You see, when I make a baby sweater, I have a go to pattern. The basic pullover from Top Down for Toddlers
It's a top down, raglan sweater. I've made it so many times it's like an old friend. BUT, yes, there always is a but, and it's usually BIG. My copy is in storage! Wait, I meant "MY FREAKING COPY IS IN STORAGE!!"
Look! Look at the beauty I have made in the past!!
Check it, yo. It's like a thing of supreme awesome.
Here is what happened with my Little Linear...
Complete Torture Destruction Nightmare. No, really, it's true yo. It's such a mess, it's stuck on my chair. My chair has been violated.
Yes, that's the crap by my chair. I've been a bit busy. Or lazy. Or sad. It's hard to say.
Now, to why I'm happy about this mess. We're moving back into our house!!! Oh sweet, sweet knitting books! Come home to Momma!! Well, moving back in, unless of course you totally want to buy my house between now and January 11th. Yeah, I didn't think so.
We're repainting the Pigs' rooms, and unbunking the beds. We're home, and so are my knitting books.
