The “Kiss Me, Hardy” Pullover: 10 days of manic knitting

9 Jul

I sewed the pieces together last night and so, the “Kiss me, Hardy” pullover project is over. It was wonderful to finally pull it on last night, although I didn’t leave it on for long because the evening was warm. I can hardly wait for Autumn and cooler weather when I can wear it for real.

I knit perhaps more compulsively that I read. In warm summer weeks I rise early to air the house out before the sun comes up. Yesterday morning, after knitting past my bedtime, I got up at 4:15 to finish the sleeve and begin the neck. I finished the neck and sewed it all up after I got home from summer school.

Here is another picture of the sweater, by itself.

I listened to these audiobooks while knitting the sweater:

1.   Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick  by Joe Schreiber – awesome, but a little violent

2. Personal Effects  by E. M. Kokie – amazing

3.  Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter – a fun romp with the rich & infamous

I’m taking a week off from knitting ( I already have 2 more projects lined up) so I can catch up on my reading.
