The Sweater Mess
from far away it looks like less of a disaster, I guess, and I do like the stripey effect of the yarn even if I'm thinking that it looks pukey up close. I shouldn't have used Homespun... it's a mess to knit with and it's falling apart and the pattern tells me to pick up 143 stitches around the placket opening and there are not that many stitches there, so I'm unsure how to proceed. I'm following Mom's advice and setting it aside, working on something I currently hate less. It may be the time of year and the fact that I just keep aging (my 23rd birthday is TOMORROW) and have nothing to show for it, but I've had such a sense of "Why bother?" lately. And this damn homespun sweater ain't helping.
