Sweater Coming Along
I'll try to post an update pic of the sweater soon. It's coming along. I've done the arm holes and am working on the torso now. Amazingly enough it actually fits.

I was working on it in a tavern Saturday evening and a couple of women were looking at it and saying that there was no way that sweater would fit me, it just looked too small. Of course that was because it was scrunched up on the cable.

Nothing would convince them except for slipping it off onto a pair of 60" cables and putting it on to show them.

No big deal I was at a point I wanted to try it on again anyway.

They were really amazed when I reached the end of the skein and showed them how I use the felted join to add the next one. It was like putting on a magic show

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

So, they were impressed with the 'spitting on the yarn' huh?

Or did you do it the more classy way? Dip the yarn ends into some water from a glass/etc.?

Love, love, love it. What a way to find someone to talk to of an evening.

Did you use your beer to make the join of the two yarns?

I love magic shows, Mason! When I read that line, I nearly choked on my tea. I can't wait to see your progress on the sweater.
