This is a project I've been working on for I don't know how long - over a year and a half for sure. The Lumberjack decided that he had his heart set on a sleeveless cardigan - and bought a PDF of a vintage pattern online...
Don't laugh! Ok, do laugh - I can't take it seriously myself! Well, it's been very slow going, and it's nowhere near finished. My original plan was to tell you about it when it was finished, but who knows when that will be!
I've never knitted an item of clothing before, so this is a first. I don't really know what I'm doing, but so far it's just standard stocking stitch. Unfortunately, the colour doesn't really inspire me, which is one reason why I've taken so long with it. (I mean, where's the aqua... or pink?!) Also, I take forever with most projects.
I've picked it up recently and knitted quite a few more rows, so hopefully I can start making some progress with it. I thought for a second it would be good if I could get it done for Christmas, but maybe Christmas next year would be more realistic!
What do you think? Is it going to look ridiculous? Will he look like an old man?? (Well, by the time I get it finished he probably will be an old man, so it could be perfect!)
