MAKE IT STOP!
See that? That's most -- not all -- of sleeve 1 of Lucky . Sleeve ONE. As in, one more still to come. This has taken me all week to make. And I'm still not done, despite knitting in the round, which, for me, goes quite a bit faster.
The second sleeve is mocking me. As is the super-long neckband and tie. As is all the assembly work.
And it's the same pattern over and over again!
Make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop make it stop MAKE IT STOP!
Can you tell I'm no longer enjoying this?
I swear, if after all this it doesn't fit, I am burning it. There will be NO reknitting of this, only conflagration.
On the bright side, it's my birthday! I am 26, which is an odd age. It's neither here nor there, but starts its slow creep towards 30, which is a bit intimidating. Of course, I got yarn -- pictures to come -- though not as much as in previous years, thank God. I've run out of storage space! I did, also, get a gift certificate to Joann from my in-laws (I'm their favorite to shop for, I think. They get me the same thing for every single occasion, and I'm just as thrilled with it each time), but I think that will go towards sewing notions!
