Yes, you read that correctly. Oscar, the longest WIP ever in the history of the world, is an FO with a capital F. As in Finally Freaking Finished! And I love him so.
pattern: Tangled Yoke Cardigan by Eunny Jang (Ravlink)
yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed in 155 (Pickle)
You may be aware that I started knitting this sweater about a hundred years ago. Okay, roughly 2 1/2 years ago. Either way, it's been a ridiculously long time. So I hope you'll forgive this brief post, but it's been such a long journey and I'm tired! It's worth noting the obvious- that there's no good reason why it should take any normal person this long to knit this sweater. I just clearly have issues. I would get all excited about knitting it during the fall and winter months, but would then get side-tracked by other projects, babies, etc. ;) Naturally, I wish I'd finished this sooner, but the most important thing is that its finished now!
I always envisioned this to be a comfy, throw on over anything, not-confining-in-any-way sweater, which is why I purposely knit the next size up. And while it turned out a tad larger than it could be, I'd much rather it be a little too roomy than a little too tight, so I'm happy with it.
I love its crazy green-that-sometimes-looks-yellow color. I really love its tweedy goodness. I especially love the awesome buttons I found that pick up the colors in the tweed so nicely.
Most of all, I love, love, love that this sweater finally out of the WIP basket and on my body!
