I can remember telling someone sometime around a year or so ago or so that I thought knitting a sweater was ridiculous due to a few factors:
a) It takes a long time
b) You can buy a perfectly good sweater for not very much money
c) You can never be completely sure the sweater you're knitting is actually going to fit you.
But here I am in 2010 with the New Year's Resolution to knit a sweater. Day 11, and it's going fairly well. I had hoped to be done by yesterday, but re-evaluated and decided not to rush things so in the end I'm actually happy with it and get a few wears (or a whole lot) out of it.
I bound off the bottom edge today. Now just have to finish the sleeves and the neck edging.
Stay tuned for further updates.
