Suffice it to say I knit. I knit a lot. I decided to work on my Linger sweater. Linger was in Knitty's Deep Fall 2023 issue and may I just say, this is going to be wonderful.
I gave it a good try on yesterday and it was so hard to take it off. It might only be a few inches below the armpit, but it was so cozy. I just know I am going to like this thick deep rich fabric. It is the cozy comfort of being wrapped in the arms of someone you love. It is not flashy but everyday. It is a safe place where you can just be your true self. It is the sweater of all sweaters.
And I think it would be so no matter what yarn you are making it in. Mine are both pretty ordinary standby wools. Nothing fancy in them at all but oh my the fabric is something special.
Whatever knitting I get to today is going to be on that sweater. Things are setting up to be a good day. Kids, knitting, baking cookies (the other good thing we are doing today). What is not to love?
Update for Fay
My hands are better right now though it is something I will have to live with. I thought it was carpal tunnel, and it is a very small bit but mostly it is arthritis. C'est le vie.
