Last spring, I started knitting this sweater with this yarn. I envisioned a nice, little summer layer -- light and breezy and easy to toss on over summer t-shirts and tank tops. I thought I might even pack it along for my trip to Scotland and Ireland.
And the project languished.
I picked it up again this fall, and . . . half-heartedly . . . kept plugging away at All. That. Ribbing.
Now, I happen to be one of those "monogamous" knitters. I cast on for a project . . . and then I just keep on knitting until I finish. (Mostly, this works for me.)
But this time? Not so much.
I decided that I'm not in the mood to finish this project right now. Because I won't wear it until spring anyway. No matter what.
But I brought it to a good stopping-spot: I got everything finished except the sleeves.
I've packed it away until . . . oh . . . March or April. Then, I'll pick it back up, knit the sleeves, weave in the ends, and . . . voilà!
I'll have a whole new spring sweater.
But not now.
Closed for the season, sure.
But not forever!
