Of course it can. . . it's my blog. I can do whatever I want.
|Knitting a sleeve: only 8 different |
strands of yarn in about 6 inches
Didn't happen. Trying to learn a foreign language--in an attempt to actually master it and become fluent, so one can earn an income, and not simply for fun so one can chat with the shop owners--is my full time job. No homemade bread. Medical journals still wrapped in plastic. But, I have managed to knit a little.
|Gazillions of loose ends woven in|
I was missing a sleeve.
|A few norsk letters: Æ and Ø|
I put this project on the shelf for about 3 months, unable to get myself to knit a third sleeve. By January, I had the energy to start it up again, and while knitting about 3 other projects, finished in in March. Just in time for Greta's 3rd birthday in April.
|She really likes the pink "G" on the front.|
One clever change I did on one side seam, that I recommend simply for aesthetics: I matched letters and colors along one side seam (would have done it on both, if I had thought of it early enough). For example: on the back right side, bottom row, knit the left half of an "A". On the front right side, bottom row, knit the right half of an "A". When you sew up your side seams, you'll have a (nearly) complete "A".
So yes, it took me 14 months to complete, but as usual I started--and finished-eight other knitting projects. It was time consuming, but worth it, because it's definitely the cutest thing I've made yet.
