Finishing a sweater always seems to be so anticlimactic. All the hours of knitting, reading and re-reading the pattern, making notes and tallies for rows and progress, the laddering to fix mistakes, the fittings, and months of sitting in a bag, it just all falls flat when I can sit back and look at it all done.
But he’s really happy with it and, honestly, so am I. My husband finally has a sweater from me. Yay! This pattern was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed the plain knit sections too. I had thought about adding some cabling to the sleeves, but I’m glad I left them out. The center cable stands out better on its own.
Now, to focus on my cable sweater and all the other projects I’ve got going.
