I reckon the long-suffering love of my life is knit-worthy. So I wanted to make him a sweater–something he can wear to work, but likes enough to wear in his own time. This began as the promise many months ago. It was going to be a Valentines day gift, an anniversary gift, a birthday gift. Somehow, there was never the time to do it, even though it was to be a machine knit, and therefore doable in a few days. Finally, after months of dithering and knitting a piece here and there, I managed it.
And the conclusion was that it was too short.
I found this conclusion somewhat aggravating.
I didn’t have the time to re-knit everything, so decided I needed to find some way of lengthening the body that wasn’t too invasive, as it were. The best option was to make the hem longer.
And he likes it, which is lucky, because that is his knitting allocation for this year! If I start now, I may just manage next year’s anniversary/Christmas/birthday jumper….
