Knitting Epic


Check out the sweater I knit for my older brother, a few years ago. Well ... um ... the thing is that it started out as a sweater for my brother. That was my intent. But it's one of those sweater projects that became so complex and so epic ... and in the middle of the project, when I hit a road block, ended up putting it down for much too long and when I went to pick it back up, I was so hopelessly lost that my only recourse was to call it quits.

But the Noro yarn that I had gotten and completed the entire back and front with was much too wonderful to trash so I just pulled the yarn completely and knit it into this large object. I really don't even know what to call it and I can't even tell you how I knit it because I just knit it into a large rectangle with little bobbles interspersed (without a pattern). The beauty of the yarn just did its magic with all of the color changes built into the yarn.

And then when the rectangle was finished, I sitched either ends together about 12 inches on both sides. It is what I use around the house when I need something to snuggle in.

Every time I wear it, I think of my brother, and the sweater I almost knit for him.
