There is a really satisfying feeling that comes from finishing a sweater and having it fit. Maybe for this sweater that is particularly true. I first started it during my winter of underemployment two years ago, after buying the yarn at Diana’s SuperBowl sale. It was still a WIP when it traveled with me to my first Rhinebeck that fall, to get inspired so I could continue knitting it. A year ago I frogged the too big and loosely knit but nearly complete sweater during Ravelympics, and cast on again. The final sweater is beautiful and worth the time invested.
