On the home stretch.
I have just 54 rows left (and short ones at that) on the Secret Yarnination. I'll likely finish Weds. night. Then just blocking and seaming... and WEARING. Mmmm.
This sweater is unbelievably soft. I have never had a sweater that was hand-knit of wool before (I have some commercial-knit wool sweaters, and some hand-knit acrylic ones from my grandmother). I certainly have had nothing as soft as this sport-weight merino. And the colors! They are just blindingly rich. This darn sweater makes me want to cry, it is so soft and beautiful. I don't even care whether it fits or not when I'm done. I'm just going to curl up with it and pet it.
I know I sound like a kook. But hey, it's my first adult sweater. And I think it's going to fit. And it's so so beautiful.
