Saga of the Secret Sweater

It’s been tough finding time to work on my husband’s sweater. It’s also been hard to keep it a secret. We’re juggling several things and he has moments where I know telling him about the sweater would cheer him up. Then I think about how much more delighted he’ll be to know I managed to keep it a secret for so long. It has been almost two months now- I think.

I’m slowly making my way up the back now. The yarn is a bit thinner than I had anticipated. I purchased it online during the closures last year with the intention of making him a sweater. This is why I prefer buying in person. Anyway, it’s taking longer to make the inches add up because of that and it’s the type of pattern I can’t just work a row or two. It’s easier to make mistakes that way.

I also keep pulling clumps of yarn barf from this skein. This is the third one. I just set it next to me and gently tug up from time to time. So far they haven’t been monsters. It’s just been entertaining.
