Yeah, I barely remember either. It only took me a year and a half to finish, but I did it! I knit my first “real” thing!
Sirius insisted on modeling with it.
And stomping wrinkles into it while he made bread on it.
It is rife with mistakes, but the pattern does a pretty good job of hiding them, and for my first “real” project, I’m pretty happy with it.
Next up… fingerless gloves!!! If I pull these suckers off, I might never knit anything else. I love fingerless gloves.
