I hate this sweater already, and I haven't even put it one. Some of my other worries about it - the variegation (I've mentioned this before), and the fact that it's a textured knit in a bulky yarn. I'm bulky enough to start, so I'm thinking this might make me look like the Michelin Man that fell into a mix of brown and blue paint.
(I'm hoping that all my negative feelings towards this sweater will be corrected once I put it on. As much as I hate this sweater, I really, really want to love it...)
Of course, this week has not be conducive to actually getting this stuff done. I've been super busy, and brain dead enough to shy away from complicated knitting. I cast on a hat in Classic Merino as part of a bunch I want to make for charity. This year's cash flow is a little tighter than normal, what with cottage and bathroom renos, so the financial contributions to my favourite charities are a little lighter than normal. At least I can donate some warmth to someone who needs it.
