Remember that sweater I started in January this year and only posted about once in March, because it was going so slowly? Well, it’s still waiting to be finished.


As you can see, the bulk of the knitting is done, but I have to sew the seams now. And because none of the seamed sweaters I’ve made in the past looked great, and because I really want this sweater to be wearable, I’ve built up the difficulty of actually doing the seaming so much that I’ve just stalled out on it (much like creating a new portfolio site or getting a business off the ground, ahem).

However, as the sign in my office says, “Nothing will make you feel better except doing the work,” which is true of…everything, really. Including seaming a sweater. So I’ll take an afternoon this long weekend and get going on it.
