That Sweater Took 45 Years to Make
Quick? I don't posess any kind of knitting magic. It doesn't just happen like, poof, it's a sweater. I have done a lot of knitting not because I'm fast, but, because I knit a lot. Not all my projects are successful. I had two cardigans both to completion this past month, and both so far look like a hot mess on me (but my actual knitting looks good). I can knit a lovely dog sweater, small they may be, but there's a lot of labor in there. There's also every knitting failure, every workshop and fiber festival I've attended, my publications, and any art or design class in there. 45 years is a long time to work on a sweater.
