See, I told you I was in a toy-making phase.
I looked closer and realized that the sleeves are a different dyelot from the rest. Now as I do recall, it's the usual "I-bought-too-little-and-realized-that-I-didn't-have-enough-yarn" situation. After knitting it, I decided it didn't appeal to me enough and threw it aside (kinda hoping that time will cause fading and evening out of colors?) And I *thought* it was a little too big, even enough it's meant for my younger sister.
Nevertheless, Mom saw and egged me on to finish it. Boy, am I glad. It feels so good to finish something. No pictures but I would try and post when it's gone through the washes. I tried it on -- for something that's acrylic, this is pretty warm.
And the fairisle bordered/cabled sweater?
I prefer to see it as half-cup full and take it as a learning -- READ MORE CAREFULLY FROM NOW ON!
Just in case you are wondering why I have been so productive the past week:-
