16″ long from armhole to hem–twice my hip circumference~ 68″–in Size 4 needles, and light fingering-weight yarn. 56,000 stockinette stitches, over 840 yards.
With front and back separated, I am knitting two-at-time and added another 5,000 stitches to the sweater thus far. 4.5″ more to go, then sleeves…and I will be home free. Maybe one more day.
Thank goodness for the sewing and the family…to keep me sane. (>.<)
As the cliché goes, time has flown. Long weekend came and went.
There are plenty of inspiring out-of-the-box ideas to explore…love turning 3″ squares to 2″ wonky triangle-squares (or not so triangular shapes.) The 3-Dimension flying geese will give it some needed textures. Prairie-point pinwheels next…To knit or to quilt? That’s the question. (^_^)
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
