I had planned to write today’s post about my Lovenote Sweater that I finished more than a month ago, and that I really love. Honestly, I’m not sure why I haven’t posted about it yet, other than that I forgot because of *gestures vaguely* all this. I had really high hopes. I was going to get dressed in something other than pajama pants, brush my hair, maybe even put on a bit of makeup to hide the stress zits, and have my husband take a couple pictures of me in my (not so) new sweater.
That was earlier this week. Now, I’m just kinda tired, and don’t feel like it. It just seems like a lot of work to change my outfit. You get it.
So, instead, I want to share my progress on my Quarantine Sweater. I’m cruising along, a good 10 inches or so into the body. I had been thinking about making this sweater cropped, like my Lovenote, but honestly I forgot I was supposed to stop after a couple inches. So I just kept going. Now we’re a stripe or two away from a nice long sweater.
I love how the gradient is turning out, though a part of me wishes that I’d gone through the effort to plan it out a little more carefully so that I just did one pass-through for the entire sweater. And I think it’ll be a good spring-y sweater when it’s done (still, hopefully, in spring).
I’m currently thinking of making it hip length, or longer, but maybe with T-shirt sleeves. Is that crazy?
(Though, if the sleeves go the way the body’s gone, I’ll probably space out and make them a good 6 inches too long…)
