Sweater in a week!

I knit a sweater in a week! Sweet! Of course, it helps that it was bulky weight; has no pattern, color work, shaping, or "attention needed" parts in anyway; and that I had copious amounts of knitting time. You will also notice, I am not wearing it - it is blocking. I said I KNIT a sweater in a week, not finished a sweater. Just saying.

The pins are just so I get a really nice edge to sew the zipper to, and a nice edge on the hood casing. I really wouldn't need to pin it out for any other reason.

Just for Phoebe, I have an update on my diagonal bag:

Look! I made the stiffener! In another two months, I'll line it. Maybe

Amazing. Once again. Amazing.

Can't wait to see that bag when it's done. I might have to swipe it from you. Don't leave it unattended.
