I just knit a sweater in three days. Not a full three days. Just a couple hours one day, and then the next and then the next. To do this, it helps if you're knitting in a light aran weight like I did--or maybe a chunky (except that chunky is what chunky does or is it the other way around?)--the Cascade Eco +, and make it a really short sleeved version of the real version because, frankly, we're feeling like we might not see the south side of 75 degrees any time soon in these parts. Truth be told, I doubt I'll even be able to wear my version for more than seven seconds without dying of some sort of wool-induced heat death.
But I knit it in three days, and that is a big plus.
I mean, who knits a sweater in three days? I knit a sweater in three days! Three days of heaven. No one intrerrupted me. I made only sixteen mistakes and hid them so well! The pattern was a delight. I don't think I will add buttons for eyes for every owl because truly, and truthfully, I don't think I could find 34 buttons at Jo-ann's that all match in the same size, but I knit the sucker in three days! (Not to mention, the Jo-Ann's in my area is such a buzz kill that you had better bring some sort of bag of booze or bottle of pills or perhaps a fresh Harikari knife to put you out of your misery whilst in line on double coupon day.)
Maybe I need to smoke that pipe they call "Size 10 Needles" more often.
