Just wanted to say that last night I sat down on the sofa in front of a gentle fire and the even ing news with supper and knitting. I had only one row to do on the sweater back – the cast off row, which I did post-haste. Sweater pieces are now finished! I’ll block them and assemble this weekend, then do the crochet edging.
I then decided to look at the hat to match. The mom wants “one of those pointy cute hats” so I may not make the pretty one that goes with the sweater. I decided to cast on an alternative in some other yarn to learn the pattern, when the lights went out.
That’s right. The universe was so astounded that I met my sweater deadline a day early that it shut down the lights.
